Lenovo’s UK Head Office Cafe and Presentation Spaces

  • Client Lenovo,
  • size 3,000 sqft
  • Year 2013
  • Location United Kingdom, Hook, England,
  • Industry Hardware / Software Development,
  • Area Sq has recently completed the fit out for a new cafe and meeting and presentation space in the UK head offices in Hook.

    “Lenovo is a fast-growing business and needed offices and facilities to evolve with them. Following consultation with staff, a brief was developed with Area Sq to create a new presentation acility incorporating meeting and touchdown space for visitors and transient staff. A new restaurant and servery for all staff was also required due to the lack of external services in the immediate vicinity.

    The Pioneer space provides an area to meet informally and work collaboratively with key features such as flexible furniture, audio visual systems and dry wipe boards. The impressive entrance features key branding and “for those who do” imagery from Levono’s strapline.

    James Cornwell, Design Director at Area Sq says: “The branding was a hugely important aspect of the brief so we designed the space around Lenovo’s library of powerful images and brand colours. The manifestation on the glazing depicted the ‘Lucky Cloud’ from the Lenovo-designed Beijing Olympics 2008 torch, a symbol of good luck in ancient Chinese culture. We reused carpet, glass and air-conditioning systems as part of sustainable building practices.””
