In 2006 NTL:Telewest and Virgin Mobile merged to become Virgin Media and take on the competitive quad-play market, TV / Broadband / Mobile / Phone. The concept 'Our Neighbourhood' was created to help Virginise more than 50 of NTL's existing buildings, from Head office to call centres and shift the emphasis from ‘them’ to ‘us’.
Key spaces looked at were often neglected and underused communal areas such as kitchens, breakout spaces and meeting rooms. These were all designed to improve the staff's everyday lives by creating an environment that they could feel really proud to be a part of.
"This is not just a veneer, there's a reason why all the design components exist"
