Freehaus were asked to develop a design for the new offices and training facilities for cafe and restaurant operator Benugo.
Working with a limited budget, Freehaus proposed a series of low cost interventions to create a contemporary, lively and grown-up environment befitting the aspirations of a young and fast-growing organisation.
Through hacking and adapting off-the-shelf furniture products and combining these with bespoke joinery interventions, the design was able to provide a high quality of finish at an affordable cost.
A key challenge of the project was combining the numerous Benugo operations into a single new home, with the new facilities accommodating a test and development kitchen, training rooms, meeting places and office spaces.
Combining warm materials and finishes with bold accents and splashes of colour, the new offices and training facilities seek to communicate Benugo’s role as a purveyor of high quality food and beverage whilst also highlighting the organisation’s adventurous side.
