A SOUTHAMPTON business centre has improved its reception with the help of a London-based interior designer.

Arena Business Centre Southampton recruited SallyAnne Holmes to create a warm and friendly reception at its Oxford Street office where people can take time out of the office and have informal meetings.

Mary Stevens, centre manager at Arena Business Centre Southampton, said: “We are really thrilled with the results. The reception is a great space and really an extension for our clients away from their office.

“Our next project with SallyAnne and her team is the business lounge area at Southampton, where we hope to create a professional atmosphere for people to network and relax.”
