Skakel & Skakel has created a high street-style café area for the offices of pensions group Royal London’s Edinburgh Silvermills building. The 440m2 multifunctional space offers sofas, Internet access and plasma screen televisions. According to Skakel & Skakel design director Andrew Skakel, there was a growing pressure to provide better facilities for staff and Royal London’s estate needed a facelift. The cafeteria area can also be used for meetings and mobile working. ‘The idea was to create a space that would not be idle for most of the working day,’ he explains. Skakel & Skakel took the contract on the basis of its long-term relationship with Royal London’s Scottish Life division.
