Tombola House features on Office Snapshots

UK-based Tombola established in Sunderland in 2006, is Europe’s largest online gaming company. All of their games are designed and developed by staff at their new headquarters building, on the banks of the River Wear. The development was a key part of Tombola’s five year strategy to double both turnover and their workforce by 2020, investing in Sunderland to attract and retain talented people.

Design practice Ryder and interior design practice Ward Robinson are part of the Ryder Alliance, a group of eight like-minded companies around the world, and regularly work together.

Ronnie Graham, partner at Ryder, and his team were supported by Ward Robinson acting as interior design consultant. Ward Robinson consultant Simon Grundy had regular meetings with the client and the architect over 12 months to refine the brief and initial designs to align all aspects of the interior with the building design, creating a unified concept.

Ward Robinson’s workplace expertise added an additional layer of knowledge in spatial concept and the furniture market to help deliver the cohesive finished piece. To develop a solution in line with the client and architect’s vision, Ward Robinson worked on bespoke finishes with a range of suppliers to ensure the correct level of precision and coherence with the whole building palette.
