Jagex Office Refurbishment

The Client

Jagex is a leading, Cambridge based video game developer.

Having worked with COEL for a number of years on smaller projects, they were already aware of our service offering and approached us to design and refurbish their workplace.

The Brief

The nature of the Jagex business attracts young, creative individuals and the company was keen that their workplace be bold, funky, welcoming and inspirational.

Highly committed to employee well-being, Jagex also wanted this to reflect in the design.

Project Size

33,000 ft²

The Design

The design embraces a desire by the company to move away from conventional ways of working. Whilst certain elements of a standard office remain, in the form of conventional desking and working areas, much of the design lends itself to more collaborative and creative ways of working. It also encourages downtime.

A variety of informal working, meeting and downtime elements were introduced, which included: large informal seating areas; a bar (complete with pool table and piano!); a gaming cave; contemporary restaurant and kitchen/breakout areas; an auditorium and a bright, welcoming reception area.

An industrial theme was adopted throughout which included concrete effect flooring, wood effect wall coverings, scaffolding and wooden cladding. Colour schemes were based on industrial greys and blacks with splashes of colour, creating a contemporary, fun environment.
