Sondrel are a technology solutions provider established in 2002. They provide semiconductor companies with low risk silicon designs in advanced and mainstream technologies.
Sondrel were expanding rapidly and had outgrown their existing space. They approached Office Principles to assist in their relocation to new offices in Theale. The new building has a large façade of glass overlooking the beautiful Theale lakes, and Sondrel were concerned that as many staff as possible should enjoy the view. Steve Cooper, Senior Designer at Office Principles suggested the breakout space should be placed in a prime position so staff could collaborate and enjoy the view. Full height glass and the clever use of graphics provided a vista which further enhances the view through the window.
Within the reception area, a clever use of carpets has helped to integrate the space, bringing a sense of crossover between the areas of the office. Steve Cooper commended, “Sondrel have been a really exciting client to work with. The ultimate challenge was the built-in marine fish tank between the reception area and the boardroom, but now that it is almost complete it looks absolutely stunning”.
