Well we’re obviously biased but here’s what we think:
It’s a relaxed working environment, and as user research and design studio, there’s plenty to read, TVs to watch and even lego and some remote control toys to play with!
In terms of internal noise, it’s probably quieter than your typical open plan office. But it’s certainly not a library either, calls are made and our day to day work tends to involve a lot of dialogue. So there’s no need to feel conscious if you’re making a call or holding meetings, it will just add to the background noise.
In terms of external noise, we’re on a busy street so you can hear traffic and people (and sometimes dogs) in the offices above/below.
In terms of temperature, it’s really easy to control the temperature in the office and we don’t tend to fall out over this! The heating gets turned up when it’s cold, and windows get opened when it’s warm.
There’s plenty of space to wander around and stretch your legs
There’s plenty of great local options for coffee, lunch, etc.
Negatives – there are only 2 toilets and no shower, the kitchen could be bigger … but to be honest – it’s a really great place to work!
