As one of the UK’s fastest growing mobile networks, it’s important that Lebara keeps pace with its own changes, as well as technology and its customers. For their new London workspace, we identified a need for forward-thinking spaces that could easily adapt to an ever-increasing pool of talent. The result is clever, human-centred design that reflects the company’s pioneering spirit and desire to better connect people.

From our first meeting through to completion we always felt like we were in safe hands, your project management team were flawless.

Enviroments
Lebara call themselves pioneers, so it came as no surprise when they wanted their workplace to reflect this belief. A balance of style and service define this future-proofed space that represents the Lebara values of fresh, open and simple.

Exploration

Our first consideration was the space itself – vast and spread over three floors, and with the dedicated management floor visible to everyone else via a glass atrium. Lebara likes to do things differently, even among tech companies. Our starting point was finding ways of encouraging an alternative way of working, where a business and its people are measured on the quality of the idea and its output rather than the route and amount of time it might take to get there.

People
At Lebara, they never stop looking for ways to make things better for their employees. We responded to this requirement by incorporating thoughtful design elements that reduce stress and enhance wellbeing, privacy and comfort.

Creation

Guided by Lebara’s belief that the best ideas don’t spring to life from behind a desk, our approach to their new workplace design focused on ways of keeping people active both physically and mentally. Comfort was also key – the idea being that when users feel at ease they are a lot more likely to produce their best work than when placed under pressure to perform. With this in mind, we created an integrated network of spaces for both kicking back and tuning in, enabling users to change pace and atmosphere depending on their needs and task.

Realisation

A new breed of technology company workspace design. Here you’ll find no unnecessary gimmicks, designed to look ‘cool’ but that in practice offer little value to users – instead more of an informal space that offers a variety of areas for users to think and create. Rather than separated spaces for different activities, bespoke dividers offer clever storage and subtle zoning, while opening up the spaces so that everyone can enjoy the fantastic views. Considered interior design touches such as interesting lighting and colourful home accessories create a relaxed environment, and staff are encouraged to use the loungy ‘living room’ and gaming area as much or as little as they need.
