North Highland, London
Collaboration is one of the crucial factors that makes North Highland such a dynamic organisation.
When tasked with the furniture procurement for their new offices, we were given quite a challenge – the space had to work for 40-60 people Monday to Thursday, but on Fridays had to accommodate up to 140! To achieve this, together we focussed on touch down and hot desk areas throughout the work space. Nothing was left unconsidered to ensure that the office could accommodate the maximum number of functioning staff when called upon to do so. The result is an extraordinarily vibrant and exciting workplace – and we’re proud to be part of the team that created it!
Here are some examples of how careful furniture selection and placement has helped North Highland’s people to achieve their goals:

What We Did
Upon arrival at North Highland, an S-Shaped booth provides a waiting area for guests, but is also valuable as a space for ad hoc meetings and touch-down workspace. Complimented by a standing-height table, it helps with the overflow during the week. With incredible views of the city it's proved to be a sought after spot.
Stepping into the main hub of the office, there are desks for permanent staff and ‘hot-desks’ too. Even the window recesses are utilised for single hot desks. The phone booths have been acoustically treated to reduce the noise transferred to the outside office during conversations of a more private nature. There’s room for fun and a sense of place, too - they look like the iconic British police telephone boxes!

Who We Worked With
Bluebottle were retained as designers as part of the Loop Interiors Design & Build Team. We have known owner Frans Burrows and his team for many years; they consistently bring original perspectives to the projects they undertake. This result undoubtedly reflects Just Eat's vibrant culture and passion for what they do, while supporting and enhancing their ability to deliver.
Loop Interiors achieved an amazing result, working under tight deadlines in an occupied building with restricted access. We particularly appreciated the regular site meetings chaired by Project Manager Jamie Fackerell, and the simply brilliant site management by Barend Booysen.
and this project could not have succeeded without the decisive leadership of our client Michelle Weiss. Having been with Just Eat since they had only 30 people in the London office, she is an integral part of their culture, and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of furniture systems!

“Great people to work with to bring to life the culture and passion that is our firm. The furniture solutions provided have worked really well and the team really got to understand what would and would not work for us and our people. The management around the project was great and they coped with changing timelines and schedules without any fuss. The team’s knowledge and insight was great and attention to detail fantastic… it has been a great experience (and fun) working with you all!”
