New Iceotope HQ launches in Sheffield Designed by APSS
Sheffield-based precision immersion cooling company Iceotope has launched its new headquarters, designed to have a positive impact on staff morale and productivity.
Designed and installed by Lincolnshire-based commercial fit out company APSS, the new office was designed for the team to better communicate their ideas and planning strategies. Break out areas allow for staff to take a break from their screen or just provide an alternative place to work which helps boost productivity.
Incorporating a biophilic design, the office interior includes greenery hanging from the ceiling as well as green feature walls acting as dividers between spaces. The greenery also acts as a sound dampener and reduces excess noise across the office in addition to the suspended ceiling rafts throughout the office.
Private soundproof meeting booths were installed with a self-irrigating planter wall on the side, providing a low maintenance connection to nature inside.
APSS Designer Emily May, who put the concept together in partnership with Iceotope explained:
“The benefit of real plants in an office environment includes helping to purify the air, reduce excessive moisture and boosts productivity by providing that link to nature.
“It was great to work with a company which has such a strong brand. It made it so easy to create an amazing look for their new office.”
Tom Parker, Director of Operations for Iceotope said:
“From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, the team at APSS demonstrated exceptional professionalism, creativity, and dedication to delivering a stunning and functional workspace that exceeded our expectations.
“Despite a tight deadline and budget constraints, APSS was able to deliver the project on time and within budget, a testament to their commitment and expertise. Their design approach, which prioritised both aesthetics and practicality, has resulted in a workspace that fosters collaboration, productivity, and employee satisfaction.
“Our team has been absolutely thrilled with the new office space, and the positive impact on morale and productivity is evident. The attention to detail, clever use of space, and the seamless integration of our company’s values into the design have made our new office a source of pride for everyone.
“In fact, we have been so impressed by their work that we are already returning to APSS for support on a new project, further solidifying our confidence in their abilities.
“We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of our office fit-out project, and we wholeheartedly recommend APSS for any organization seeking to create an inspiring and efficient workspace. Their dedication, skill, and customer-centric approach make them a standout choice for office design and fit-out services.”
