The Brief

A brand new office space located in the centre of Uxbridge, sporting huge open plan floors flooded with natural light. 90 guests from the property industry were invited to view the space and enjoy lunch and drinks on site with the property owner and team.

The client looked to Social Pantry to bring a new take on the traditional office launch- be gone the standard corporate set up and normal formalities.

The space was huge, well lit but completely empty with white walls and metal floors. Social Pantry’s aim was to energise the space and make it feel the opposite of what it was- an empty shell.

HH Empty Office space copyDrawing on the natural light and local garden area, Social Pantry brought the outside in (with the help of our friends at Worm London) through the use of large floral and foliage displays that helped break up the space and create a welcoming environment that evoked the senses. Drawing on this, the tables were dotted with beautiful single stem vases of foliage and flowers, bringing height to the table and a variety of colour and texture.

EventWith the intention of creating a focal point that gave the wow factor to the stark space, Social Pantry did away with traditional round tables and chairs and instead, provided one long table filled with sharing dishes and bowls that created the ultimate Spring feast. This layout encouraged a relaxed and sociable feel to the event.
