FBI or Flexible Business Interiors are a Manchester based specialist fit-out and refurbishment contractor
They have one simple goal: to transform workspaces into flexible and intelligent workplaces.
Doing this via a client-driven ethos that allows them to truly understand their customers’ business, their employees and how they work. Delivering workspace interior design projects that compliment the client company ethos and helps it to achieve its goals.
FBI work with many illustrious clients, on this occasion they were working on a design bid for Chase De Vere. The financial advisers required a design scheme for their central London office. As with many of our workspace clients, the whole project was going out to tender, requiring FBI to submit a proposal for the commercial interior design and specialist fit-out of the office space.
North Made Studio were appointed to assist FBI with the visualisation aspects of the design bid. Almost all workspace tenders require some form of visuals to allow the interior design ideas and aesthetics to be communicated visually to the client.
FBI had their vision of what the spaces should look like, requiring North Made Studio to assist in a way that would push their ideas to the forefront, making their idea stand out above all other bids for the tender.
Opting for an animation of the spaces rather than the traditional CGI stills ensured this aim was successful. The use of an animation worked perfectly as the workspace environment was vast and comprised of several different areas, sections and individual office rooms. Animation allowed all spaces to be visited by viewers in under 60 seconds, and all via one simple file. No need for PowerPoint, no PDFs, no folder full of images, all super-simple and easy to experience.
Our animation guides the viewer through the entry area, navigating through corridors, boardroom, open-plan workspaces and a kitchen area.
With an expansive workspace interior design comprised of traditional working desk areas, visitor meeting desks, senior leadership office spaces, front of house meeting rooms, informal internal meeting rooms and various break-out spaces.
Materiality was key to the design aesthetic, spaces were visualised using a strict specification that included stand-out features such as bleached oak, reeded glass, accent tone fabrics and bronze brightwork.
