Scott Brownirigg Interior Design’s fit-out for Volkswagen Financial Services Headquarters in Milton Keynes has won the BCO ‘Fit Out of Workplace’ Award at The Midlands & East Anglia regional awards. The win was announced at the BCO Awards lunch held today at Birmingham Town Hall.
The BCO Awards recognise excellence in top quality design and the functionality of office space. The Awards Programme acknowledges innovation and focuses external attention on examples of best practice. The scheme will now go on to compete in the National BCO Awards, held on 4 October at the Grosvenor House in London.
The winning design for Volkswagen Financial Services’ new headquarters provides flexible and agile working spaces and a new style of working for the company’s 800 staff. A theatre style conference centre, business lounge, restaurant and a ‘Kombi café with its own tailor made Kombi VW van, all surround a dramatic full height atrium. The atrium provides a central hub for the building allowing for staff collaboration and movement.
The office design reinforces the Volkswagen Group brands and company ethos. The brands are present throughout each floor with a chosen colour theme and a number of bespoke art installations including spectacular three dimensional pieces and feature partitions.
