Smart Home Sounds moves into new purpose-designed HQ

Smart Home Sounds, the Gloucester-based smart speaker retailer has moved to a new, purposely-designed headquarters. The new premises at Triangle Park, Metz Way, Gloucester has been designed and the fit-out managed by company MD and founder Andy Hazell.

The company, who in September 2019 reported a growth of 100% over two years and an annual turnover of £3m, is a retailer for smart speakers and stocks ranges by Sonos, Bluesound, Kef, Bowers and Wilkins and, most recently, Marshall.

The smartly lit stair case leads to the main open plan office area housing marketing, customer service and finance.  The scheme features plenty of plants, especially chosen to help filter the air and low emission white light task lighting, all mainstays of good biophilic design. Add in Herman Miller chairs, vaulted ceilings, neon lightboxes and, of course, the very latest in AV and audio throughout and the new Smart Home Sounds HQ is very much a headquarters to shout about.

Andy Hazell, MD, Smart Home Sounds said: “Moving into these new headquarters marks an important milestone for Smart Home Sounds. We finally have the space we need to grow the business and I’m proud of the creative innovative workspace we’ve created. The opportunities for creativity are endless so I’m looking forward to seeing what the future brings in our beautiful new home.”

The two-storey headquarters boasts a state-of-the-art showroom for creating content to demonstrate how products can be set up and used in customers’ own homes.
