New year, new Friday Features! We’re kicking off 2016 with a series of our favourite offices in the UK. Our office envy series focuses on innovative and unique workplaces to inspire creativity. Find out what our favourite work spaces have been this month…
The unique and environmentally friendly UK headquarters for charity WWF is the first up this month. The amazing office, designed by Hopkins Architects, features an open-plan office environment over two floors of meeting rooms, auditorium, public interactive zone and classroom with some stunning views! This is not your typical office, trees and surrounding natural features are it’s main focus. The building itself is an elegant mix of steel and timber with PV panels giving the building a green and sustainable design.
Fit out specialist, Overbury, worked with PwC to fit out over 450,000 Sq Ft of office space at Embankment Place, London. Their central London home was transformed from a tired, awkward and unloved building into a modern office space all whilst remaining in occupation. This project was tackled in two halves to work around the business. The result is a spacious office building filled with natural light and modern features needed for a workplace in a bustling city such as chill out rooms and bicycle security with shower rooms.
This modern and attractive building for The Keynsham Civic Centre & One Stop Shop provides an environmentally sustainable, low maintenance and flexible workplace. The office was transformed from a tired 1960’s office to a bold development with gold clad features that are a nod to local history. The project aimed to maximise natural ventilation as much as possible.
This award winning ‘cool’ office is the London home for American tech giants ‘Splunk'. The project of creating a UK home was approached with an objective to translate the brand values of innovation, passion, disruption, openness and fun.
The final result was a collaborative workspace that also allows the team to have fun with the range of quirky features throughout, including a Tardis experience room. With bespoke graffiti and a sci-fi experience this working space is definitely different.
