The design and build project by Cherry Hill Interiors relies on a vibrant colour palette to capture the brand identity of the company
Chegg is an American online textbook rental company that specialises in online textbook rentals, homework help, online tutoring, scholarships, and internship matching. It is meant to help students in high school and college. One of their Indian offices was recently designed and executed by the team of professional architect and designers from Cherry Hill Interiors Pvt. Ltd.
The 35,000 sq-ft office, located in Jasola, starts with a rustic feel at the reception, finished with corroded copper, wood, metal mesh, and concrete. The Interview Lounge is connected to the reception with a waiting area for the candidates. The workstation starts with the staircase with step seating for employees to sit in a casual atmosphere, interact and unwind. The conference room has a white palette with orange as the only bright accent, giving it a subtle yet classy feel. The lights above the conference table are customised stretched fabric lights, enhancing the ambience with its soft glow.
Designed keeping employee wellness in mind, the workstation area consists of height adjustable workstations, which deliver a complete range of ergonomic postural benefits by allowing employees to sit or stand at their whim without disturbing others. The overall theme of the space has a neutral base with orange accents.
Along with the the bright accents on the glass partitions, ceiling, etc, the wooden flooring has shades of burnt orange complementing the theme and inducing warmth into the office. The café is one of the livelier spaces in the office with the pantry/serving counter in green acting as the focal element in the space. It is finished in corrugated sheet to give the notion of a shipping container, resulting in a laid back, rustic ambiance. Overall, the feel of the office is young and trendy, ensuring the brand and culture of the company is alive.
