Client – Nexusmods
Location – Exeter, Devon
Status – Completed 2020
Three storey office refurbishment for programmers and game developers Nexusmods undertaken this Summer with the help and aid of The main office space is spread between two floors and has custom made desks which are all height adjustable to allow for sit or stand work positions. Neon logo sign and angle pose ceiling lights
create style and urban feel against the bare brick feature walls. A separate
more private work area is located off the main work area. All chairs are
ergonomic Herman Miller, allowing for maximum comfort. Outdoor terrace area
with banquette seating allows for alfresco socialising.
On the top most floor a private gaming area has been created for employee’s to be
able to take a break from work and either game alone or with other team
members. A large TV with access to all types of gaming consoles and L shape
sofa allow for team bonding. Five individual gaming stations with gaming chairs
and mounted screens have been installed in the corridor type space at the end
of the top floor. The pixel type design is reflected from the floor onto
the walls with the bold orange colour scheme.
On the GF the Library has been designed to be a closed off area where private
reflection or adhoc group chats can happen in peace. Divided by crittall style
windows a soft sage colour scheme and comfy Eames Style lounger set the scene
for relaxation. Drop-down whiteboard desks with wheeled stools allow for group
exchange of ideas. Fully sound proof with soft atmospheric lighting creates a
different place to work.
Located on the south-facing side of the building this large space meeting room
overlooks a lovely green garden area with large windows where solar shade
blinds have been installed. A large concrete table which can sit ten
comfortably on sage green wheeled chairs from allowing for team meetings. Historically the external wall where the window reveals still exist host an array of gaming artwork by Nexusmods and geometric acoustic bars above help with sound proofing.
To help increase activity and movement at work we have designed the smaller FF
meeting area to be multi-functional, the table can also be used as a ping-pong
table. An urban style interior complete with graffiti fabric forms a window
seat and abstract city scape wallpaper by forms our design. Again solar screen
blinds have been used on the window with industrial light fittings throughout.
This room is our favorite space to chill!!
