Yell headquarters, Reading

Appointed in 2007, Broadway Malyan was asked to consolidate the various Yell sites throughout the Thames Valley into a central headquarters near the Reading rail station. Yell HQ fills eight floors of the new ten storey One Reading Central building.

The design encourages movement and interaction between staff members, with clear sight-lines through the open plan space and the creation of small “neighbourhoods” at focal points throughout each floor.

There is a variety of meeting and breakout areas from quiet zones to one-to-one rooms to presentation rooms, each space supported by careful furniture selection.

The open plan meeting areas use hm86 chairs with special hm85 dining tables. There are four colour coded meeting rooms that feature hm85 chairs and hm46 sofas that were adapted to include power and data units in the arms.
