A Peek Inside Guinness World Records’ London Headquarters
Guinness World Records, an international authority on a huge number of World records, recently relocated into a new headquarters located near Canary Wharf in London, England, and designed by interior design and fit-out firm Blue Jelly.
“Having outgrown their existing space in Warren Street GWR appointed CBRE to start an
extensive building search, which ultimately led to the selection of South Quay, Canary Wharf. Blue Jelly were then introduced by CBRE and invited to present a detailed design, fit out & furniture proposal as part of a tendered process. Having obtained our full submission with space plans, ‘sketch ups’ and 3D visuals, GWR felt that that our understanding of their target ‘look & feel’ had hit the right mark. A key area of concern was the current lack of meeting space. With this in mind Blue Jelly created versatile meeting arrangements to cater for both corporate meetings and more relaxed soft seating areas for non-confidential meetings. A key success feature focussed on a large bespoke graphics package developed and installed by Blue Jelly. The finished project provides an outstanding working environment where staff are enthralled and proud to be based in this intriguing home, built to reflect the quirky and wonderful world of Guinness World Records”, says Blue Jelly
