Saab

What a great space to work… or play from!

The brief to our design team was to create a modern and relaxed workspace for the UK headquarters at Saab. We did this by designing a contemporary, relaxed breakout space for the team to unwind from the fast paced, security based roles which are intrinsic to this global technologies company. We also designed and implemented working offices, meeting zones and a large, modular training suite for Saab to showcase their military defence and civil security offerings.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, so the image and quality of their new HQ needed to be on brand. We worked closely with the client to ensure their image was represented correctly to their staff and stakeholders by creating a quality work environment and a bespoke artwork portfolio which sits within the workspace.

Natural tones

Natural green toned carpets and fabrics, twinned with cutting edge materials such as terrazzo made for a very fresh and clean work environment. Biophilic elements were introduced to ensure the connection to the world in which Saab’s technology is keeping safe for humanity.

Team collaboration benches

These were introduced by Lyndon Design which look stunning in their new finishes. Kvadrat commercial fabrics were also specified to enrich the commercial furniture we introduced. Tarkett terrazzo classical flooring with Interface Touch & Tones were the perfect balance between hard and soft flooring zones.

Boss Design Maysa sofa

A large team viewing sofa was supplied for the LED TV wall zone. This brand new Maysa product was manufactured by or seating partner Boss Design and looks stunning in the space. A perfect balance between home and office for a much more relaxed experience for internal company presentations or even a pizza night!

The new headquarters are located @The Dock

This is a major regeneration scheme in Hull’s Fruit Market, adjacent to the historic Central Dry Dock. The development offers 58,000 ft2 of office space and is a superb environment created by local developers Wykeland. Saab have recently expanded their UK based operation and these offices were a perfect fit.
