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 Aitch Group project team had aspirations to capture the life and energy of East London into the 70,000 sq ft of commercial space they had available. We worked in close collaboration to develop a workplace design solution for their coworking space that encapsulates the vibrant and creative energy of the area, focussing on creating a unique space that would inspire an eclectic community.
Combining a variety of workspaces including private studios, open plan desking and meeting room space, each workspace is designed to be agile, providing spaces to suit various users and activities. Further communal spaces such as the tea points and the informal lounge area provide a reprieve from focus spaces and help to facilitate impromptu chats with neighbours creating a greater sense of community.
The materials and colour palette were influenced by the industrious history of the area, complete with bespoke graffiti and shown in the details of the scheme through the use of exposed brass piping, raw concrete bricks and reclaimed timber cladding, each detail comes together to create an energetic and modern workplace perfect for inspired individuals.
In addition to the more traditional coworking offering, we also completed full CAT A works to the neighbouring read-to-occupy commercial office space. Here carefully exposed mechanical and electrical services are juxtaposed by crittall glass partitioning, each sitting harmoniously beside each other, portraying the eclectic harmony of the surrounding area. Finally, AIS completed the design and build for the adjacent gym space, making Fish Island a complete commercial workspace offering.
