Capital One is an information-based lending company, founded on the belief that technology and information could transform the industry. Still led by its founder with that vision, it is a successful global bank and one of the UK's top credit card providers supporting millions of customers.
At its office in London, Style worked with architects, HLW International LLP, and contractor, BW Workplace Experts, to create a flexible room configuration in the company’s meeting area.
In a large open plan room, Style installed a DORMA Moveo semi-automatic glazed moveable wall to create a central divide, splitting the area into two. This created a second large meeting room with natural light and excellent visibility.
An additional solid Dorma moveable wall then sub divides that space into two further, smaller meeting rooms when required. This wall was then finished in a stylish green stretched fabric with Squiggle Glass magnetic white boards to offer the client working walls for meetings, brainstorming and seminars.
Offering 55db Rw acoustic integrity, Style’s solution enabled meetings of varying sizes to take place undisturbed.
“This is a really stylish, but very effective, use of space,” said Style’s group managing director, Julian Sargent.
“In essence, Capital One now has the choice of three working areas; the full open plan, the two larger meeting rooms or the larger area and the two smaller rooms.”
Style is the exclusive UK partner to DORMA’s moveable wall range and, as well as offering a full design and installation service, also offers UK-wide aftercare support for servicing, repairs and call-outs.
“Our advice is to treat a moveable wall like a car and have it serviced regularly to ensure its longevity,” concluded Julian. “In doing so, it can serve you for 25 years or more and its acoustic integrity can remain in tact.”
