Situated near the historic town of Bury St Edmunds, Thomas Ridley Foodservice are one of the most recognised and trusted wholesalers. Celebrating their centenary last year, the company contacted Bluespace to create a workspace fit for the future.
No strangers to the business, our team have previously completed a refurbishment of their head office and were excited to bring the same kind of creativity to their Suffolk office.
Comprised of a large conference space, casual meeting spot, and an informal dining area, the latest project demanded careful attention to ensure that employees and clients could make the most of a relaxed environment.
Defined by a playful spirit, a range of bright green and orange tones have been introduced throughout the office, meeting, and break out spaces. Above the dining area, a fixture bearing a lively tartan pattern was included to engage the visual senses. A subtle variation of this print was also used on a table immediately behind the dining area to maintain consistency.
Contrasted by neutral fixtures and earthy wooden flooring, our designers were keen to introduce the most exciting elements of contemporary office design to the space.
Consistent with the lively look and feel which governs the surrounding spaces, the conference area features a large canvas depicting garlic cloves. Reflecting the nature of the business whilst at the same time contributing to the broader character of the office, this finishing touch is undoubtedly amongst the most unique additions to our projects.
Overall, the Thomas Ridley office is a vibrant, functional, and unique place to work and meet in. Hoping to inspire the company as they move into a new century of business, the team at Bluespace are incredibly happy with the project.
