Our venues are not just four walls and a table – they’re creative meeting spaces in London that drive imagination, innovation and excellence

Whether you’re looking to get the cogs turning for a brainstorming session, encouraging team-bonding or simply want to make your business conference more exciting, here’s everything you need to know about unlocking your team’s creativity. Let’s dive right in:

The impact of inspiring meeting rooms for creativity

Boring boardrooms? Forget them! Instead, opt for a space that goes beyond the norm – because who says meetings have to be dull and forgettable? Unique and quirky meeting venues should take attendees on an immersive journey, improving engagement to make them active participants rather than passive observers.

The benefits of well-thought out office design are endless. With strong links to improved team collaboration, employee engagement and higher levels of productivity – there’s a lot more to meeting room design than meets the eye.

This involves comfortable seating, natural lighting, greenery and a space that’s not stuffed to the brim with clutter.

When workers feel free to move around, whether they’re getting up for a coffee or heading to the restroom, a decluttered space ensures everyone feels more at ease, less restricted and overall, more comfortable in their setting.

Consequently, they’re better-placed to do better work.

That’s exactly why every element of our meeting spaces is carefully curated to invoke inspiration and set the stage for memorable brainstorming sessions.

The modern and aesthetically pleasing decor, combined with strategically placed elements, such as artwork and greenery, create a harmonious and visually engaging setting.

Ergonomic design for optimal comfort and creativity

Traditional boardrooms focus on formality, with people sitting in stiff chairs around a table. How do you expect people to feel relaxed, open to ideas and creative when they’re uncomfortable in their surroundings?

Sitting around for a long period of time can lead to drowsiness and fatigue, putting a damper on creativity. However, sitting in a comfortable chair specifically designed for long-term use minimises this issue, keeping minds alert, engaged and ready for the next idea. Essentially, comfort is key.

By making the effort to promote comfort, you’re increasing your chances of having a healthier, more productive and creatively fulfilled workforce.

Our furniture is carefully chosen for its ergonomic design, ensuring your team can fully immerse themselves in the creative process without distractions.

Plus, the desks, sofas and chairs can be rearranged in all our venues to suit your team’s preferences, allowing them to feel at ease and free to explore innovative ideas in a relaxed setting. But more on space layout and optimisation later…

Interior decor for enhancing productivity and focus

Just because you’re talking business, not everything needs to be serious. Interior design is the chance to be a little playful and push creative boundaries.

Well-designed interiors and certain colours can have a real impact on workplace productivity, known to improve the overall mood of the room significantly. For instance, bright, warm colours can evoke happiness, while cool colours are designed to make you feel calm and relaxed.

Therefore, a well-balanced room with a nice blend of colours will naturally improve employee wellbeing and as a result, their work.

Nobody wants to sit in a dark, dingy room. Instead, open up your space with an interesting colour palette.

Similarly, there’s also a strong link between natural light and improved focus. Workers exposed to natural light reportedly experience better sleep, less drowsiness and improved mood. And of course, healthier, happier workers are more productive as a result.

Greenery is known to be a mood booster, with 31% of workers stating that their concentration improves in the presence of greenery. Other than looking pretty, plants can actually help to reduce stress, improve health with better air humidity and even reduce noise levels due to their acoustic benefits.

Plus, the Human Space Report revealed that employees surrounded by natural elements scored 15% higher for creativity than those without.

Both our Smithfield and Barbican venues were designed to be productivity-enhancing corporate meeting roomes, with good interior design at the forefront. After all, the facts can’t be argued with!

Vibrant pops of colour inject energy into the space, while calming hues inspire tranquillity and concentration – it’s the perfect balance to optimise productivity. Similarly, natural light streams in, inspiring clarity of thought and illuminating brilliant ideas.

Our design elements are not just for show; they’re carefully curated to unleash the creative beast within your team, unlocking a wealth of innovative solutions.
