Microserve is a Drupal web development agency based in the heart of Bristol. Due to continued expansion, the team had outgrown their old offices in the city centre and were looking to move into new offices in the Colston Tower.
Having agreed terms on a whole floor, the exciting part was engaging an interior designer to help bring the space to life and the choosing the right flooring was an important part of that.
The office is a challenging space with entrance in the middle of the floor and then splitting off onto two sides, so a key part of the brief was that the design needed to bring the two sides of the space together and ensure a continuous flow.
The other thing that was important was to play to the light and inspiring views being based from the 11th floor of the tower afforded.
The team spend a lot of time at their desks so open plan comfort was key as was allowing lots of break out spaces so they can take regular breaks, but also meeting rooms to provide a nice space for clients to visit and also work directly with the project management teams.
The colour palate was chosen partly to reflect the Microserve brand but also the vibrant industry it works in. The team also wanted the final finish to reflect the personality of the team and make it somewhere people want to come to work, and to help attract future employees.
Having such a large area of open space allowed for a more dynamic use of flooring. Having discounted a standard wooden floor, the team opted for durable carpet tiles from Modulyss. A sustainable solution that is ideal for creating a bespoke look using different textures, but take heavy wear and use but still looked colourful and stylish and able to bring the whole look together.

“This was a real departure for us and the whole team is delighted with the new office environment that’s been created and really reflects our brand.”
“The investment of using an interior designer and expertise of the team at Rivendell definitely allowed us to create a unique space. We are really pleased with the result and clients are always saying how much they enjoy visiting our offices now, which is the real test.”
