Inside Vifor Pharma’s New Staines Upon Thames Office
Pharmaceutical company Vifor Pharma recently hired workplace design firm Oktra to design their new office in Staines Upon Thames, England.
“Vifor Pharma came to us looking for a new workspace to better support their working practices in a location closer to town and with more amenities. They wanted specific wellbeing measures factored into the design, like universal access to natural light and plenty of breakout spaces. We delivered a design scheme in harmony with their new building and its assets with built-in flexibility to support Vifor Pharma’s ways of working well into the future.
As a global company with design standards in place, we made sure the new space reflected the Vifor Pharma brand. Our design team worked closely with the client teams throughout the project, with a series of design workshops, furniture tours and sign-off meetings. The new workspace ties in elements of Vifor Pharma’s identity with angular graphics and a neutral palette punctuated by their brand colours, while distinctly retro furniture gives the Staines Upon Thames office its own identity.
The result is a working environment that promotes internal collaboration and agile ways of working. From flexible meeting rooms and training spaces to breakout areas and boardrooms that open onto roof terraces, Vifor Pharma’s new office provides the types of spaces their staff need to increase efficiencies, attract and retain top talent and continue to foster their strong company culture,” says Oktra.
