Lindsays, Edinburgh - A Flexible & Creative Approach

Ranked by The Times as one of the UK’s best law firms, Lindays prides itself on its founding principles of flexibility, approachability and excellent customer service.

The firm has been in existence for over 200 years and has long been at the forefront of modern workplace thinking, being an early adopter of the open-plan office amongst other concepts we take as a given today.

After a series of mergers and staff numbers rising, Lindsays’ head office was beginning to feel the strain. Instead of opting to relocate, the Edinburgh-based firm decided to renovate.

Lindsays wanted a clean and modern workspace that would be suitable for staff to work in an agile manner while being flexible enough to accommodate confidential client meetings in professional surroundings. We delivered just that by introducing Cube acoustic booths and by installing two bespoke moving wall systems to create and shape meeting spaces.

Initially, we were approached to provide a series of booths for the fit out. Set to be located towards the rear of office and geared towards providing staff with a flexible space to work privately or hold impromptu meetings, we ran through a series of options before recommending the use of Cube.

Our acoustic meeting booths feature Class A-rated acoustic inserts to stop sound from escaping, and can be inherently customised. For this project, we manufactured two identical four-person Cubes, complete with a bespoke yellow, black and grey colour scheme to match the office’s other furniture items.

Thanks to a positive experience working with us on a previous project, we were also invited to propose a series of walls – one acoustic and one glass - to help divide the Edinburgh office’s main meeting rooms and add to the projects overall wow factor.

With high acoustic capabilities, Solo was the obvious choice for the first set. However, this wasn’t to be another standard white Solo wall: Taking on board what was required, we let the design teams know that we’d be able to wrap the wall in Camira’s popular Blazer fabric to create a unique acoustic wall that would match the office’s sleek and contemporary design scheme.

For the glass wall, we proposed the use of our Insight system. With a 90mm frame and toughened glass, Insight can achieve a 45dB rating and also offers designers a wide range of practical benefits simply not found on other glass systems – such as full-height and inset pass doors and a myriad of different colour options for the frames.

Impressed with our capabilities, both suggestions were included in the final design. Making an impressive visual statement, the combination of the use of our Insight and Solo walls help create a flexible working space that can be tailored to meet the needs of a dynamic and forward-thinking company.
