A Tour of Hutch Games’ Cool New London Office
Hutch Games is a UK-based a gaming company that develops games for iPhones and iPads. When they acquired new space in London’s Shoreditch, they hired interior design firm AIS Workplace to create a bespoke workplace that would help them attract the best tech talent London has to offer.
“Guests are welcomed into a comfortable and quirky front of house area where bold custom wall graphics mix with a palette of exposed brick and worn tan leather to create a relaxed vibe where guests and staff are invited to chill out. This space merges into the staff breakout area and open plan kitchen, further enhancing a transparent company culture. These adjacent spaces can open up into a town hall space that accommodates up to 60 people and allows the Hutch team to hold seminars and events. Custom designed wall joinery houses additional casual seating so that when it’s time for a meeting employees can pull a stool out and take a seat then when they’re done, slotted back into the wall for tidy storage. A sliding folding wall connects the front of house space to the main work area, where scattered amongst open plan desking, a variety of informal work areas, including high bench tables with stool seating and casual armchairs allow staff to hold impromptu meetings and quickly collaborate over concepts. The fun and industrial look and feel weaved throughout the entirety of the office compliments the Hutch brand personality and supports the energetic and fast-paced nature of the business, allowing them to remain at the forefront of their industry and portrays their business as ready to take on the next generation of gaming creatives,” says AIS Workplace
