For one of our latest office fit out projects we were required to bring the outside in. Working alongside the clients designer, we were tasked with using materials, colours and furniture which reflected nature and gave their staff a feeling of being outside rather than within a traditional office space.

Office fit out briefs like this are fun to with and the end result always looks great. Here's a few tips on how to get an outdoor feel in your office.

  • For the ultimate in 'outside in' design, why not lay artificial grass instead of carpet?
  • Decorate your office with products made from natural materials: wood, glass, water, or other plant materials
  • Fill your space with greenery and use stylish containers to compliment your decor
  • Incorporate objects into the design that are found outdoors. For instance, you could add some stencilled leaves to the glass windows, doors and partitioning
  • Keep cut flowers in the reception area and meeting rooms
  • Use earth and jewel tones for paints, carpets, fabrics and other accents
  • Decorate the walls with outside-inspired art and sculptures

There are many other themes that can be used in office design, how about a circus, fairground or play theme? Perhaps something nautical or beach inspired? Taking inspiration from hotel layouts is useful, particularly when thinking about collaborative workspaces.

If you're thinking of something adventurous for your next office fit out, contact us to see how we can help.
