Rix project Header Image Image of project

Hull, UK

We worked with a historic family business to consolidate its multiple businesses into one space - while maintaining their own identities.

J R Rix & Sons wanted all its subsidiaries to work out of the same space to create more unity and collaboration.

Creating one company base

The Rix group had a number of businesses  in different locations. In order to operate more efficiently, it was decided that all departments needed to be consolidated and operate out of the same space.

We began a consultancy process with the different teams, which involved several meetings with the various departments and companies that fall under the Rix umbrella, to understand each of their requirements in terms of desk numbers, storage, space and more.

Using our design expertise, we created ‘zones’ for each team that each had their own subtle identities while complementing each other in look and feel. All were designed to have a residential feel – rather than a ‘traditional office’ – using wood and elements of biophilia.

To make the most of the space, we suggested a design that would suit hybrid working. This included booth seating so that some of the space had an ‘away from the desk’ feel.

The design met the company’s requirements for a cafe collaboration lounge and gym area. We also included a flexible ‘town hall’ space where two smaller rooms could be opened up to create a large conference area.

Creating a ‘big’ first impression

Not only were we instructed to design the office space, we were also commissioned to redesign and fit-out the building’s reception area.

We wanted to create an entrance that was impressive without being overwhelming or intimidating for visitors – to reflect the companies inside the building. The attractive new seating is usable and appealing, and an indoor planting scheme has totally transformed the space.

There were also functional aspects to consider with the new reception area. A ‘draught lobby’ needed to be included to allow both the wind to move through the space and the doors to function. We removed the unused second entrance which meant we could move the reception area and use the larger space to create the draught lobby.

Our new workspace has really transformed our business and provides an environment that facilitates collaboration and hybrid working. Chameleon’s work has helped to change perceptions of our business and has helped us to become a desirable place to work. I would highly recommend Chameleon Business Interiors.
