The power of silence; why we work in our shed of solitude

Here at Amey and Co we take great pride in our working environment. Based in Faringdon, Oxfordshire we are around 2 miles away from anything that could be deemed as civilisation. Whilst some companies may think that this is a terrible idea, we love it.

But why, what makes our shed of solitude the most wonderful place in the world to us?

Why we love our shed of solitude

Here at Amey and Co, our creativity is the driving force behind our business. We want to make sure that we deliver to our clients, the very best in all things design. Which means that we need to focus ourselves on exactly what they are looking for.

So, why a shed in the middle of no-where?

It is often though that in order to create, you need to collaborate, but this really isn’t always the case. In fact, sometimes the very best creative minds need to work alone. Rather than feeling alone and lonely, being able to shut out the outside world, and all the distractions that come with it, can help those minds to focus intensely on their chosen craft.

We like to think that working within the shed, means that our valued clients and customers are getting the very best from us. There is no popping out for lunch, no chatting at the water filter, just us with our tools, concentrating on what we need to do.

We know that interaction is also key

Now, we know that from time to time that even we have to leave our space and enter into the realm of the rest of the world. That is why you will find us appearing from our shed, eyes blinking as they look into the light.

Sometimes it is to network, sometimes it is to get a break away from our computer screens and sometimes it is simply to forage for food.

Having the option to retreat back into our shed means that we can have the best of both worlds, which means that we can be social, but we can also hone in on the business that we have worked so hard to create over the years.
