Imium worked along IG Design to Design, Develop and Deliver a fully refurbished new office space that had been designed to help change the way the company works. The client wanted to move away from individual offices and create a more communal workspace that encouraged more collaboration while working as well as accommodating more staff as the company continued to grow over the coming years.
Stadium Plaza is one of the major hospitality and entertainment hotspots in the centre of Cardiff, located next to the Principality Stadium (formerly the Millenium Stadium) and a short work from Cardiff Central Train Station. Stadium Plaza is home to major companies such as Vue, Superbowl and Pure Gym and is one of the most popular attractions in the city.
Situated opposite the new Central Square development and the new BBC Wales headquarters, Stadium Plaza was starting to show its age compared to the newer high-quality office buildings in the area. As part of the plans to redevelop the ageing Stadium Plaza, Naissance Capital contacted Imium to assist with the refurbishment and ensure that it remains an attractive destination for families and groups in Cardiff over the next several years.
Working alongside a local architect the brief was to create a modern and inviting space that greeted customers as they entered the building. Central to the design is the bespoke feature light designed by Design Haus Liberty in London, it is a 2700 piece fibre optic chandler called “Birds In Flight”. The feature light has 2700 individual handcrafted brass pendants that are designed to replicate a flock of birds migrating for the winter.
Enterprise Rent – A – Car
After extending their lease on several branches, Enterprise Rent – A – Car decided to give each branch a much-needed face-lift.
Enterprise Rent A Car are the worlds leading car rental company with branches all over the globe, they take pride in the service they are offering their customers and always aim to go the extra mile and ensure that each one of their branches reflects this.
Amongst the fit-outs was the Hadfield Road branch, the largest Enterprise Rent – A – Car branch in Cardiff which needed to be designed to reflect the needs of both staff and clients. The tired and dated decor was updated to become a brighter more welcoming space for anyone visiting the branch.
