The Brief

Create an office design concept for their workplace which would reflect the strength and energy behind their nutrition and lifestyle brands.

The Solution

SCI-MX Nutrition is an active-lifestyle nutrition company with a brand portfolio providing high-protein snacks, drinks and supplements to fuel and support active lifestyles.

After meeting the client, we started the design process and spent several months ensuring that the look and feel of the project fully reflected the SCI-MX Nutrition business. Working with the contract managers at Edge PS, we began the detailed design for the space as well as being awarded the office fit-out and furniture contract.

We emerged with a gritty, graphics-led, urban-gym inspired design where collaboration, interaction, agile working and ‘team energy’ were key. Branding and graphics were also hugely important in bringing an energetic and edgy feel to the workplace. Finishes are raw in places, including painted concrete floors, exposed blockwork walls, a graphic brand package, and exposed services and open ceilings.

Polyflor’s ‘Simply’ range of loose-lay vinyl floor tiles were used in the social and breakout areas, while Interface carpets provided an industrial, concrete-effect backdrop to the space.

What the client had to say
At SCI-MX we have a portfolio of brands within the fast-moving Active Nutrition and Healthy Snacking categories, so it was our goal to provide a working environment that physically embodied who we are as a company, that allows us to become a work hub that provides various spaces that can be both fun and practical for current staff and help to attract the best new talent. From the first meeting, we felt the Paramount team “got it” and really went above and beyond to design, develop and deliver a full concept to reality solution that as a team we are proud to come to every day.
