Base Soccer – London Office
Base Soccer, based just off of London’s busy Oxford Street, are one of the UK’s premier football agencies. Working with some of the premier leagues biggest names as well as stars across Europe. Their services extend beyond contract negotiation into areas such as sponsorship management, financial planning and concierge services among other things.
With the offices situated on the first floor of a central London office block, natural light transmission into the offices is very limited, creating a very dark environment. When a recent office redesign was commissioned, a key part to the brief was to make as much use of natural light as possible, in as much of the office as possible. Yet at the same time, providing the levels of discretion and privacy that their clients require.
The initial designs were for the meeting rooms to situated on the side of the building with the main windows – this would allow natural light transmission through these meeting rooms into the main reception area. To allow this light transmission, glass partitions were added to the design to divide the areas and provide an acoustic barrier. This solved all problems expect for the privacy brief. Traditional blind options were looked at, along with curtain options. It was decided that neither of these two options would suit such a modern design, nor would they create the right impression to Base Soccer clients.
This is when ESG, the UK’s leading switchable LCD privacy glass provider were contacted to create a fully bespoke solution for Base Soccer. Three separate areas of 12mm switchable glass were installed to the reception area, totalling 16m. One office and two meeting rooms were installed with the glass, with a single four button wireless remote control switching each area off and on independently. ESG Switchable™ is the final piece in the design jigsaw that has been created to give the wow factor for all that visit the office.
