With existing UK offices in Reigate and Brighton, Jellyfish had an increasing demand for their London-based training courses and a growing London client base which led to them opening their spectacular new London office in The Shard in July 2016 – a space that reflects their innovative and dynamic business style.
Workspace in the sky
Jellyfish worked with design, build and project management company Workplace Creations to develop the 9000 square feet office space on the 22nd floor of The Shard, to capitalise on the incredible views of the London skyline from this iconic building.
Mark Deeprose, Chief Creative Officer for Jellyfish and mastermind of the office fit-out, first saw the TopBrewer on the Channel 5 Gadget Show and immediately saw its visual and practical potential for their own state-of-the-art office:
“The new office is all about showcasing Jellyfish as a classy, grown-up business and TopBrewer really complements the stylish look and feel of this fantastic workspace as well as providing top-quality drinks.”
TopBrewers installed in client and staff areas
The new workspace has been thoughtfully laid out to work both visually and on a practical level for staff and visitors. The open design combines training facilities with a communal breakout area, client meeting rooms, agile working areas and fixed working space.
“We have achieved an open, flowing design for the workspace with top-class meeting facilities that support our aim for flexible working, collaboration with clients and to provide our team with the space and resources to flourish. Staff have been overwhelmed by the new workspace and the TopBrewer has contributed to that by creating a real focal point.”
The TopBrewer provides a wide range of barista-style, bean-to-cup beverages from a sleek swan neck tap, with the machine itself discreetly housed under the counter to provide total design flexibility. Staff and visitors make drinks to their exact requirements through the iPad set into the worktop or through the app on their phone.
One TopBrewer is installed in The Bar, an area connected to the training rooms and used by trainees, staff and clients. The modern, comfortable interior includes a soft seating area in the window that provides uninterrupted views of the city.
Another TopBrewer is installed in the kitchen accessed from the central area of the office, which is dedicated to client meeting space and hot desking.
The TopBrewer Experience
Jo Bond, Global Brand Manager at Jellyfish, describes the reaction to the TopBrewer from staff and visitors:
“Everyone has been super-impressed with the TopBrewer; it has been a real talking point with its range of gourmet drinks and app-based functionality, which many have not experienced before – it’s a very cool piece of kit.”
