iManage transforms how professionals work. The multinational company helps service firms improve productivity and collaboration through a range of integrated platforms and management tools. In 2019, they opted to renovate their UK office and tasked workplace design experts Maris to come up with a brand-new vision for their two-floor space in Shoreditch.
This space, however, had its problems. The office itself had the potential to be an acoustic nightmare due to the unique ‘open-sided’ floorplate of the upper level which allowed sound to transfer easily between the two floors.
This posed a problem not only for concentration within the open plan office, but for privacy as well. This issue was compounded by the abundance of harsh and reflective surfaces Without treatment, iManage’s workforce would have suffered from distraction due to stray and unwanted noise.
