FORD FOUNDATION

This letter confirms that Interiors for Change is known to our organisation. After an industry wide search, Interiors for Change were appointed to assist the Ford Foundation in the design, planning and refurbishment of our new office premises in Johannesburg in February 2012. Ms. Catherine Groves was the project manager, she and her team were hands-on from the beginning. They instantly understood the Ford Foundations brief and requirements. The design, project management and updating of drawing packs were backed up by detailed minutes. Their organisation skills ensured the whole team was up to speed on every aspect of the project, giving The Ford Foundation peace of mind. Ms. Groves and team offered a highly professional service and handled the office build out, interior design and relocation skilfully. They demonstrated sound business ethics and integrity, and went beyond their scope of work when assistance was requested. The Ford Foundation would recommend Interiors for Change without hesitation.

 

Yours sincerely
Karen Rayman
General Services Officer
Ford Foundation Southern Africa

Reception

The interior environment is designed to be both timeless and metropolitan. Sleek polished finishes with walnut timber elements create a friendly and upmarket interior.

Coffee Area & Break Away Areas

The cafe is centrally situated in order to serve client meetings as well as staff coffee and lunch breaks. Break away areas are dotted across the environment for ad-hoc meetings and private calls.

Meeting Rooms

Timber details and light wall papers were used to display the Foundation’s impressive art collection. The Meeting room tables have full connectivity to reticulation that runs conveniently in the center of the table.

Executive Offices

The footplate consists mostly of individual offices with few open plan areas. Each office was designed with a bookcase with storage, and some offices with a small meeting area as well.
