Workbox were appointed to design and build a new UK office in London for Internet search engine firm, Funnelback. The innovative look created by WorkBox’s interior design and space planning team included modern and contemporary office space. This will allow Funnelback to develop their internal and external communication, as well as a dynamic space to grow their business over the coming years. The cutting edge design include a breakout play area with a grass bank and swings, as well as a red telephone box area for one to one meetings or video-linking to a client. The new space is a great place for visitors, clients and staff to work and engage with each other. The project based in Shoreditch, incorporated office, meeting, private and collaborative areas.
Gordon Grace, regional manager at Funnelback in London, said: “WorkBox’s professionalism and enthusiasm inspired confidence in our recent fit-out project, from first meeting to final sign off. The team recognises the reality of tight timelines and budgets in construction projects and they were happy to educate us and adjust their approach as and when necessary.”
He continued: “Their thoroughness and attention to detail is second to none. I’ve never had a better experience with tradesmen, and I’d be happy to recommend WorkBox’s services to others.”
Director of WorkBox, Stuart Thacker, said: “We were delighted to team up with Funnelback and create a modern workspace for both staff and clients to enjoy. In the fast pace of today’s internet age, it is vitally important the company have a work environment which complements that and we were delighted to provide this.”
