UK-based office design firm Morgan Lovell has created what it calls “a “truly inspirational” new Hayes-based office headquarters for Rackspace, the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry.”
The new offices house the company’s “Rackers” (the name adopted by Rackspace for its loyal staff base) into 100,000 square feet of space in the Hyde Park Hayes development in western London, UK.
Rackspace Office byb Morgan Lovell:
“Rackspace is the world’s leader in IT hosting. But when the time came to host their staff in a creative new office, they called us.
They wanted an office that would both inspire their employees and reflect what the business stands for. We knew that Rackspace call themselves the ‘home of fanatical support’ and that gave us an idea…
We gave every floor a different theme inspired by the ‘family home’, but with a bit of a twist. The ground floor represented a garage, complete with its own personalised mini cooper. The first floor became a 70’s inspired lounge for meetings, with chairs situated around an artificial fireplace. The second floor, also perfect for meetings, turned into the library, including dark leather chairs, long mahogany tables and bookcases. The garden, decorated in decking and fake grass, was situated on the third floor along with the boardroom; a complete replica of Number 10 Downing Street.
For the company, the building stayed true to their values and the variety in workspace means they will never lack inspiration. For the energetic and creative staff, it’s a place they can come to everyday and always feel at home… literally.”
