Eco Design Consultants Office
Eco Design Consultants located in The Mansion at Bletchley Park because of its links to public transport and architectural interest. Moving into a space with so much history is a privilege, renting our office helps to preserve the building whilst continuing its innovative use. We set out to minimise the impact of the office fit-out. To reduce our environmental footprint we sourced only second-hand furniture, from a variety of sources including second-hand office furniture suppliers, e-bay, and freecycle. To tie together the different looks, cover some of the tatty bit and stamp our brand on the space we covered the dividers with grass. This has the additional benefits of absorbing sound and is in-keeping with the Biophilica design philosophy. Biophilia is the idea that humans have an innate and genetically determined affinity with the natural world.
We continued the use of natural shapes with several large plants to add structure and zone spaces. The plants are excellent absorbers of CO2 and are also very effective at absorbing pollutants and VOCs, so they have a positive impact on our physical and mental health and even productivity. The large palms and lilies are a permanent feature with other plants introduced to reflect seasons, we have even harvested chilies in the summer.
