Sykes Cottages

Case study

The holiday rental company is the largest independent cottage holiday agency in the UK and wanted to combine their two locations into one central office.

Project:
Sykes Cottages, Chester

Client:
Overbury

Products Used:
Alvier Sofas, Betsy Swivel Chairs, Coso Chairs, Mesa Bench Desking & Screeens, LTF Tables, Moment Tables, Santis Squared Task Chairs, Steps Compact, Take Off Lite and Zela Upholstered Seat.

Brief:
They had outgrown their current office and were also in two locations so wanted to join the offices together. This would then encourage flexible working, enable flexible meeting areas, offers generous breakout spaces and also give them room to expand.

Solution:
Sykes Cottages took over a whole floor in the Chester office block next to the train station. The floor to ceiling windows along with the colourful furniture gives a bright and airy feel to the office environment. Bench desking with meeting points are intermittent for informal get-togethers.

Clients View:
The company runs better under one roof, the new flexible working furniture encourages teamwork and for staff to socialise together during breaks.

Informal meetings can be held without booking large meeting rooms out.
