NoChintz were appointed by Cert Property to refresh the communal areas and exterior of the building to breathe new life into the space and attract new tenants to the prime office space.
Detail and meticulously thought throughout delivered a new brand and wayfinding scheme which provides ease to the user and consistency through the building. A premium and cohesive entrance to Centric House is brought to life through a vibrant brand application which plays off the existing architecture.
Modular furniture, a refined material palette and a playful wayfinding strategy activates the building to become a bold platform for business’s to create a home within Centric House. Design decisions are reactions to the curves and symmetry in the existing architecture. Maximising this small entrance space with a layered palette, engaging textures and transparency throughout.
Challenging what is expected of a workplace reception by bringing hospitality and retail considerations forwards to reinvent the space. A relaxed atmosphere is created with modular furniture breaking down the relationship between receptionist and visitor.
This considered scheme has gone beyond the original brief. An opportunity to co-work and relax adds a sense of community to the reception enabling the beginnings of the Centric House network.
