School Reception & Office Design

School Office And Reception Area Design

Fusion plan, design, and furnish school and college offices and receptions. School and college offices often include work zones, print and collation areas, storage and hardware to maximise the efficiency of a space. Occasionally an office will also have a reception role as well. Our knowledge and experience in creating well-planned, uplifting, offices will always result in ideas and suggestions, careful considerations of the 'wish list' and budget conscious solutions. 

School Persona in Reception Design

Dedicated reception areas offer scope to stamp the school personality and culture into a front-of-house setting. School reception design should be well-planned for high volume foot traffic, visitors and the needs of a reception desk to perform well as a working desk. Furniture needs to be robust and durable. IT and cabling should be safe, out of harms way but still accessible when needed. Lockable storage is vital. School reception area design draws on knowledge of furniture, operational requirements, spatial layout and visual design to create a durable, impressive and budget-conscious scheme.

Fusion will ensure that our school reception area design and proposals for school offices incorporate best practice in all parameters, are delivered and installed by experienced staff and are fit for purpose. Additional images of furniture for offices and receptions are shown in our FURNITURE section. The advantage of using Fusion to design and furnish a school admin or school reception area lies in our expertise, our ability to combine products from various sources, design purpose-made joinery or customised furniture where required, coordinate finishes and services and deliver a seamless service, all within an affordable price level.

Make an Instant Impression

As an educational establishment looking to make a good first impression, it’s worth taking the time to focus on the design of your reception area. This may or may not go hand-in-hand with the schools office area, depending on the layout of the school.

A school’s reception area is usually the first area any prospective student or parent will see when entering the school for the first time. With that in mind, it’s important that you create the right impression by considering the design of your reception area.

Things People Like to See in a School Reception Area

  1. Clearly sign-posted and easy to find.
  2. Well decorated.
  3. Displays of students’ work on the walls.
  4. To be offered a hot drink.
  5. Comfortable searing areas.
  6. A friendly, welcoming receptionist

Behind Closed Doors

Behind every great looking waiting room or reception area is a fully-functioning office and admin area. This will be where most of the administration, paper storage and IT solutions are handled on a daily basis. For different reasons, the design of the school office should be considered.

A lot of staff will usually pass through and use the school office every day, so it needs to reflect the ethos of the school and everything it hopes to achieve. The school office can have a serious impact on the morale and productivity of staff, as well as how well things are organised and processed. A combination of these things will be considered when we look at the design of your school office and/or reception area.

How Can We Help?

We can’t find you a friendly receptionist, nor can we control how often you offer your visitors a hot drink. We can, however, have a big say regarding how well your reception area is sign posted, how it is decorated and laid out, where and how you display students work on the wall and the comfortable seating of course.

Overseeing all projects from start to finish, we can help you to find the furniture, desks, chairs or seating to suit the theme and ethos of the establishment. From school office furniture to waiting room chairs, school reception desks to architecture, sign posts and displays, we can assist you moving forward.
