Elevating Workspace Aesthetics and Functionality
The heart of the project saw the meticulous office fit out to the three upper floors, which now provide a harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetics for the client’s employees. The second floor received an impressive upgrade, including the installation of a functional and modern kitchenette, as well as brand new toilet facilities.

Moving to the first floor, Capel crafted three private offices tailored for the architectural firm’s directors, underscoring the importance of individual workspaces and ensuring they meet the specific needs of the client. On this floor, a welcoming main reception desk area can be found, used to facilitate a warm and inviting atmosphere to the office.
