International Personal Finance
A calming and muted workspace design for leading home credit company, International Personal Finance, focusing on creating a hybrid workplace
Leeds, UK
designed by
ADT Workplace



International Personal Finance, or IPF, are a leading home credit company and digital provider of consumer finance and their aim is to make a difference to their customers lives by offering a simple and personalised financial solution. Key to their success is a 22,000 strong team of employees across 7 international markets, headquartered in Leeds UK. With workplaces having changed irreversibly over the last 18 months, IPF turned to ADT Workplace to realise their workplace transformation.

Focussing on creating a hybrid workplace that provides a wide range of activity settings, ADT Workplace worked closely with the team at IPF to ensure spaces were provided for every type of working style and the interactions that needed to happen within the space. Starting at the welcoming reception area, the soft colour palette creates a resimercial atmosphere, bringing in natural wood finishes, biophilic touches interwoven with a stabilising black base. Their storage needs are beautifully and efficiently met by having a run of our Storagewall running alongside a meeting zone. Not only does this provide essential storage in the workplace, but also divides space without building walls.

In between two Storagewall units our Palisades II zone divider provides a fun break, as well as further storage and echoes the natural and biophilic elements featured in the design. In several different configurations throughout the space, our HotLocker banks provides staff with essential personal storage space. Customized to their needs, the doors feature a range of neutral colours and wood finishes, and the variety of sizes allow staff to choose a locker based on their needs that day. Paying tribute to their international status, world maps feature as a motif throughout the design. The bright colours of the breakout areas, collaboration booths and social zones show the personal character of the team and transfers a fun, high-energy vibe to the space!
