Firms are continually pushing the boundaries when it comes to office space. Thanks to developments in technology and interior design, as well as shifting working habits, organisations are creating increasingly divergent and interesting spaces.

Instead, you can simply find serviced offices Birmingham or elsewhere that tick all your boxes from the outset. This means all you have to do is move in and start working. Nothing could be easier.
BMG case study
One organisation that’s well aware of the importance of effective office design is BMG. The international group of music companies, which trades under BMG Chrysalis in the UK, the US and Sweden, has transformed a premises in Wigmore Street, London.
Writing on Financial Director, the firm’s Mark Ranyard noted that it needed a new office after BMG bought Chrysalis in February 2011. The building chosen was Grade II listed and it had housed one of the UK’s first department stores.
An exciting and creative workspace
Mr Raynard noted that managers had clear objectives when transforming the working space. About this, he said: “Having found the right space, we needed someone to turn it into something we could use. The brief was to maintain a clear BMG corporate identity, while also making it an exciting creative workspace.”
He also stated: “Our office is more than a space – it has been integral to the company’s development, both reflecting our culture and engaging our people.”
Delivered on every level
Mr Raynard went on to remark: “We decided the process of creating the new office should embody the collaborative new BMG Chrysalis culture we were trying to create.” He added: “In a series of project meetings, we thrashed it all out. I am glad to say that what we ended up with has delivered on every level.”
Open plan and lots of glass
In terms of design, the office is open plan and it features plenty of glass, Mr Raynard pointed out.
Offering extra detail, he commented: “Where individual offices are essential – for example for the artists and repertoire team which scouts and works with artists – we have given people leeway to design their own space, with the only rule being that desks have to be the standard white. Naturally, music is everywhere, playing at the reception and represented in disc form on the ceiling – and there is music memorabilia and decorations.”
At the rear of the office there’s a design-led breakout area with Wi-Fi, a bar, table football and relaxed furniture. Meanwhile, the overall colour scheme is grey and red, which reflects BMG’s corporate livery.
