    Utilize, a leading technology provider in the South East of England, were looking to create an inspiring workspace that would attract new talent and enable them to achieve their future growth plans.

  • Shaped

    We held multiple design workshops to better understand Utilize and their people. This enabled us to create a workspace with the right combination of work settings and accurately embody their company culture in the design. The Utilize project involved converting an old warehouse into an office space. To help us demonstrate how the space would evolve we used 3D forms and visualisations; enabling Utilize to be involved in the process from start to finish.

  • The new space is breaking down barriers between departments and encouraging meaningful conversations in a way that is physically tangible – morale has never been higher.

  • Transformed

    The new Utilize office matches the world class service they provide. The central kitchen and atrium area brings people together by enabling impromptu conversations and the collaboration area – with dual screens, whiteboards and sofas – supports a more collaborative way of working. Other spaces, such as the quiet call rooms, allow for privacy when needed. There is a renewed energy in the Utilize office and we’re looking forward to seeing how their new space inspires people to achieve amazing things.
