Rowan House

Burton Green was tasked with transforming a business centre reception into a warm and welcoming shared reception for a Health and Wellbeing Centre, on the outskirts of Norwich. The existing space was in need of refurbishment; a functional space, lacking character and atmosphere.

Burton Green took the time to find out what image Rowan House wanted the business to portray to its clients and visitors, and came up with a sketch layout and concept drawings. From this a set colour-scheme and style was chosen, leading to the process of selecting furniture and designing a bespoke reception desk.

The company was to be re-branded as Rowan House, so Burton Green felt it was vital that the new brand combined well with the re-design of the reception and waiting area, training room and treatment rooms – giving a continual look and theme throughout the building. We achieved this by representing brand colours within the fabrics and finishes selected for soft furniture, paint and wall finishes.

The works on site were completed by the client and their nominated contractors, so it was important that Burton Green presented the ideas and proposed finishes in a way that was easy to understand and implement on site. We were able to achieve this by providing a layout plan, 3D visuals and sample finishes with references. Burton Green provided the loose furniture using commercial manufacturers that we know and trust.

The final result has been well received by both Rowan House and their clientele.

We used Emma to transform what was previously a business centre reception into a shared reception with Health and Wellbeing treatment rooms. Getting the right balance between a professional business setting and tranquil wellbeing reception was vitally important.”

“Emma spent time with us trying to understand the 2 different areas and what we were trying to achieve from the refurbishment and the results were absolutely perfect. We have so many comments how spectacular the area is and what a lovely calm feeling it has, it is the perfect first impression we hoped for.”

“Emma was very easy to work with and was always available and flexible in her approach; we would certainly recommend her services and will be using her expertise again in the future.”
