Design & Space Planning
Our relationship with Hutch began back in 2018 when they first entrusted us with the design and refurb of their newly acquired space in London’s tech hub of Shoreditch and since then we’ve never really left! Building a lasting relationship with the Hutch team we’ve now completed subsequent floors to support their ever growing team.
The design concept for the space was industrial but make it fun! We carried on the style and feel that we created in the original fit out. Pops of colours and graphics that AIS have developed in conjunction with the Hutch team have been applied throughout the space to create the unique Hutch style that the staff have really come to love.
Working within the former warehouse building had its’ challenges, mostly in making the space acoustically sound with its’ exposed brickwork and vaulted wood beam ceilings. Suspended acoustic screens were key in solving these issues, while at the same time help to divide the space and create intimate pockets of workspace for smaller team collaboration. The screens lower reverberation and background chatter in the space and were laser cut, making them bespoke with the Hutch logo.
Each floor features a different custom made Hutch sign, further embedding the unique personality of the business. As the Hutch business continues to grow strength to strength we remain their trusted workplace design and build partner, now assisting them as they expand into Canada opening their first overseas office in Nova Scotia.
