Genesis Motor UK
Luxury car manufacturer Genesis Motor UK, a division of Hyundai Motor Group, was created five years ago and has since gained traction in a number of international markets.
Still a relative newcomer to the UK market, the business needed a UK Head Office which reflected its global brand identity and that could be adapted to meet the needs of the growing business.
We had previously undertaken a survey of another potential office space where the team had appreciated our integrity and approach, along with our willingness to develop a long-term partnership.
The team were delighted with the subsequent Axis House design proposals, which they felt both reflected the brand and accentuated key design features, perfectly suited to their requirements.
Axis House carried out a full consultation, design and build programme for Genesis, with the specific purpose of accommodating both full-time and hybrid working patterns. Around 30% of staff worked remotely so a neat hot-desking space was critical.
The final specification reflected the client’s requirements for good access to natural light for all staff, comfortable workspaces with premium quality fixtures and fittings throughout. This included office space, meeting rooms and a kitchen, all of which was designed to create the best user experience and maximise the workspace flow to support the way people used the environment.
A comfortable reception area, on-brand design and high-quality acoustic finish all added to the overall look and feel of the space, as well as reflecting the brand’s key corporate messaging.
Working with a specialist consultant we developed an office space equipped with the latest technology, including slick plug-and-play screens to support meetings and make it easy for the UK team to connect with global headquarters in Germany and their partners all around the world.
The 3,500 sq. ft project was completed in 8-weeks, which aligned with the teams’ requirements and received great feedback from senior staff in the UK and overseas.
“Genesis, as a premium luxury brand, has high standards, and exacting expectations. Therefore, I would like to thank the team at Axis House for their excellent work on our new UK headquarters. We are delighted with the outcome, which has more than met the team’s expectations. The support, dedication and professionalism of the Axis House team were instrumental to the success of the project… and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.“
