New furniture, carpeting, decorations and planting has now been installed on an intermediate floor of Romero House, CAFOD’s low carbon headquarters building in Southwark. Following user feedback, the designs are being rolled out on all levels.
The changes introduce a mix of new high touchdown tables with stools and contrasting low level softer furnished spaces for meetings. Landscaped containers are tucked into the corners of the triangular floor plan. As part of the works acoustic panelling is being installed in the meeting rooms which now have to accommodate the mix of virtual, as well as in person team meetings – spaces being successfully adapted to a new way of working.
Attention now turns to the kitchen areas which will have their recycled plastic worktops polished after 12 years of use and a new seating layout introduced to bring people back into these communal areas and away from their desks.
