Working across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas, G2 Travel is a leading wholesale tour operator, specialising particularly in group trips for the B2B travel industry.
The company had moved into a new-build complex, consisting of seven individual shell and core units – a space that Tribe Furniture and Thirdway would turn into G2 Travel’s new ‘home’.
The fact that this project was shell and core had perks; it meant that the team had the opportunity to design and furnish all aspects of the space, making it truly bespoke to the client’s needs.
The entrance is an incredible double-height space. The client wanted to create a wow-factor with a unique mezzanine to maximise both space and impact. Situated on the mezzanine is a “collaboration area”, filled with high benches, booth and banquette seating – allowing employees to break away from their traditional fixed desk environment in a relaxed and informal setting. Also on the mezzanine, a large, glazed boardroom overlooks the contemporary kitchen and breakout space and boasts a bespoke floating table with black leather Vitra seats. The breakout space offers a mix of soft seating areas, bar stools and sofas with pieces from Allermuir and Connection providing a relaxed and informal environment for flexible working. Other key features in this area include oversized hanging pendant lights, a living moss wall and herringbone tiling.
The main office space is also split across two floors with angled timber slats creating a standout ceiling feature and defining key working areas. Lockable storage is provided through smart lockers, separate c-suite personalised offices provide privacy and a number of timber planters contribute to wellbeing throughout the office. A number of free-standing acoustic booths from JDD provide quiet space for focus or small group meetings.
G2 Travel’s new home provides a fresh and modern space for employees with plenty of natural daylight and agile working opportunities.
