Signbox apply Skype cool with digital glazing graphics at London HQ.

Signbox has successfully completed an extensive signage project for the stylish London offices of Microsoft subsidiary Skype. The refurbished offices occupy 90,000 sq ft over three floors of Waterhouse Square, Holborn; a Grade II listed, gothic landmark considered one of London’s most distinguished buildings.

The innovative layout and radical departure from a conventional workspace was designed for Skype by tp bennett LLP, the award winning architectural practice, and delivered by ISG. 

Signbox worked in close partnership with the RAW design team and tp bennett, to communicate the Skype brand across the office environment. Involving a meticulous design and testing phase, Signbox utilised their latest in-house Durst Omega 2 to print some 1,000 sq metres of optically clear Lintec film to provide manifestation across all the glazed partitions and doors. The design provided privacy screening whilst still maintaining a light and airy feel to the spaces. 

Signbox - Skype Offices

Each floor is organised by theme – British bands, products and people – with every room named accordingly. Signbox laser cut acrylic signage and produced a range of bespoke way-finding icons, designed specifically by RAW, to assist with the multi-lingual Skype team.

UK-based Signbox is a leading signage solutions provider that can transcend a company’s brand across any environment. Clever design and engineering excellence underpin the company’s conceptual, holistic approach to architectural signage, and it has developed award-winning visual communication strategies across a number of market sectors, including corporate, education, healthcare, retail, hotel and leisure.
