Fidra Office JaneR Designs

Fidra, an environmental charity based in North Berwick.

The brief to create a functional, flexible working environment from materials with first class environmentally friendly credentials.

Using existing desk tops we created a series of smaller workspaces, a couple at standing height.

Each team member had their own crate to keep their essentials in under their desks.

A relaxed reading/ meeting area was created by restoring and reupholstering vintage Ercol chairs with a beautiful vintage style wool rug.

Shelves made from salvaged ladders

Ladders were used to create a run of shelving.

Upstairs a reclaimed shutter was reinvented as a mirror and the existing run of cupboards was painted and given new knobs.
