What we do
Combining our three core specialisms with cross sector experience from a world-class team, we transform businesses through the built environment and enhance the way people work.
The vision was to create a workplace environment for the future, one that would appeal to a creative workforce, encourage innovation through interaction and leverage the latest technology for communication, presentation and collaboration.
Our client, a leading media production company established in the UK and US came to us with an agenda to create a smart casual environment to appeal to creative types. We went about designing a space that was youthful and contemporary whilst also appearing sophisticated and forward thinking in tune with the companies entrepreneurial nature.
Building a workspace that enabled consistent connectivity and transparency was a key element of the project in order to retain the strong sense of community within the business. The subsequent design was targeted at achieving this whilst ensuring the space as functional and versatile enough to facilitate innovation.
Across the floor plate the space fully embraces the company culture of openness. While each team within the business had intrinsically different space requirements, some requiring more quiet working environments and others that needed space to cater for louder work, our design incorporated a number of gathering spaces to give people who may not work together the opportunity to mingle during breaks allowing for the open sharing of knowledge. Each space had carefully considered partitioning solutions that separated teams acoustically but maintained a sense of the ‘one office.’
Central to the layout is the informal town hall area, a flexible space that embodies the notion of collaborative and modern ways of working, offering staff a space for sharing, informal meetings and social gatherings. With exposure to natural light directly linked to greater workplace performance we built up collaborative areas around the perimeter of the space allowing for maximum utilisation of natural light flowing into the space.
Creating more collaborative, agile spaces has empowered employees to bring their best ideas forward and given them more autonomy than their previous pace. The workplace provides staff with a space they can be proud of and showcases the business’ commitment to providing innovative and expert solutions to the technology sector.
