Yammer’s office was certainly based on the mantra of work hard, play harder, they gave their employees a reason to love coming into the office, staff could always find different places to work weather it was formal, informal or equally as important somewhere to take a break, wind down and gather your thoughts, one of the most diverse we have built to date.
With lots of bespoke joinery, full height glazed partitions, skype booths and meeting rooms just to name a few, the challenge was bringing all these different materials together in what was quite a tight schedule and working in a building which was essentially still undergoing heavy construction works meaning logistics and health and safety had to be planned with great precision.

Bringing outside in
Biophillia is a key element in boosting workplace wellbeing and as humans we all have an innate desire to be closer to the natural world and the perfect way of doing this in your fit out is through bringing what you would expect to find in the great outdoors in!
Yammer featured plenty of plants, trees, grass, wood, straw filled coffee tables and various other rustic finishes to really emphasise on the importance of this.
Most importantly, the breakout
Whether it was to host company parties, meetings, collaborate or take a casual break, yammers did it all, with a large hard wearing breakout area full of colour and plenty of links to the outdoor elements, a lot of staff used this for a number of different reasons.
Finger on the pulse
Bring staff together and keep them Inspired throughout the day, tech firms and toys often go hand in hand, featuring a ping pong table in this meeting room they focused on always trying to get staff to feel relaxed, get to know one another and help ideas flow naturally and be explored at will. An added bonus when there is no onsite gym and you want some exercise!
