Ward Robinson was commissioned to project manage the build of Tombola’s new headquarters and working closely with the architects, Ryder Architecture, the interior design team selected furniture and furnishings to reflect and complement the architectural spirit of the building.
Tombola moved adjacent to their previous headquarters at their riverside campus at Sunderland’s Wylam Wharf on the banks of the River Wear. Tombola House accommodates 160 staff over 25,000 sq. ft of office space.
The building has modern and technologically advanced open-plan offices wrapped around a three-storey-high atrium. The carefully planned furniture layouts designed by Ward Robinson help to fulfil Tombola’s aspirations to create opportunities for idea sharing, communication and more organic interactions within a stimulating environment.
The ground floor provides a reception area, meeting rooms, bistro and gym facility. The atrium contains an impressive stretch of bleacher seating leading up to the first floor, providing a dramatic space for presentations and events. The building also boasts a diverse range of informal training and presentation suites with the latest AV and video conferencing technology.
