Working in partnership with Ast, Astaura delivered a completely bespoke, purpose-built, 21,000 square foot head office. Part office, part manufacturing hub, the HQ features a unique open-plan design, giving both staff and visitors a transparent view of the business.
Together, Ast’s Managing Director, Mark Aston, and Astaura’s Director, Gary Cranson, created a working environment that linked the whole business.
With each area of the business previously housed in seperate offices, it was important they were now all together under one roof in a space that was designed for optimum efficiency.
To ensure that the project was completely bespoke to Ast, every element was individually designed, from the digitally-designed floor tiles to the etched glass finishes to the bespoke oak reception desk. All were created with the Ast brand in mind.
“I still get blown away by The Box everyday. As soon as you walk in, it’s just WOW! It’s such a cool place to work and because it’s all open plan, you can hear everything – all the machinery at work, people chatting and the music playing. It gives you a real sense that the building is alive, like it’s got soul.” –Gary Cranson, Director, Astaura.
