Interior design can make a difference to the way that you feel in your home and likewise it can make a difference to a work place too. At Swank Interiors we have been working with local solicitors Steeles Law to design and fit out their new Diss office.
Having been at Mount Street since 1987, the move to St Nicholas House in St Nicholas Street gave the opportunity to move away from the perception of a solicitors office as somewhere that is cold and unapproachable – instead creating a space that is bright, friendly and welcoming.
The scheme has been designed to feel fresh whilst working with the traditional architecture of the building. The bold colours have been used on feature walls and for the upholstered furniture sitting against a warm grey backdrop.
Upon entering you are welcomed by a curved reception desk with a waiting area off to the right. A bespoke slatted screen was designed and fitted to divide the space without loosing the contemporary open plan feel.
The modern branding using mustard and aubergine gave us the colour scheme and it was important to work with the curves of the logo.
The layout was carefully considered to look neat and streamlined while giving maximum number of desks. Although most of the office works ‘paperless’ there was a need for some filing but you would hardly notice the colour matched aubergine filing cabinets that sit at the end of desks.
Following the success of this project Swank Interiors were commissioned to redesign their Norwich office.
