Before and After Story of Xactly Makeover Project By the Riverside, Bangalore

90% of the project was done in eco-friendly timber, lights & furniture were done in-house workshop with most installations during night shifts to avoid disturbing office working.

Designed by Swati Seraan, the Xactly makeover project was done in the remarkable time of two months


The aim of Xactly makeover project was not only to improve the aesthetics of the office but also to do it in such a way that it reflects the energy of the office. The need was to make the office look trendy but at the same time should look mature without using too many colours and funky/quirky designs.

Xactly Corp India

They used rustic/industrial theme to represent that and chose completely opposite colour scheme from the existing one. This way the designers made the office makeover very impactful without doing the entire office.

Xactly Corp India
