The White Building, Reading
Carbon Black delivers the industry's most complete endpoint security platform, and required an office environment which reflected a modern progressive software company.
Having acquired 5,500sqft of the newly built White Building in Reading, Carbon Black wanted their new space to have a modern industrial look and feel, to complement the buildings exposed services, whilst reflecting the companies brand identity.
A central core of glazed offices and meeting rooms creates visual links across the space, and allows the natural light from the large external windows to flood through. Carefully angling this central core of rooms, and creating intermediate collaboration zones provides a flow through the open plan space and links the whole office.
A feature carpet highlights this central core of rooms, and brings in the brand colours. Utilising the blacks and greys of Carbon Blacks branding emphasises the modern industrial feel, with the brands blues and oranges used as accents throughout the space.
Industrial style feature pendant lights, highlight and compliment the exposed services and vaulted beam ceiling.
A lozenge window to the teapoint enables seamless views into the space, encouraging staff to utilise the area for breakout, collaboration and company get togethers.
Feature manifestation to the glazed partitions showcases Carbon Blacks branding, whilst providing a balance between privacy and visibility.
