🌱Sustainability

  • Retrofit: Transforming underutilised 1980s office building into contemporary open-plan workspace, appealing to a wide demographic demand

  • Key design challenge was reconciling depth of building with need for natural light: use of colonnades + arcades to dissect space rather than corridors allows offices to benefit from natural daylight + maintain vistas

  • Energy efficient light sensors throughout

  • Architectural ethos of 'designed to last': material palette leans heavily on natural oak woods that develop a patina with time rather than needing to be replaced


🥦 Wellbeing

  • 16 accessible outdoor terraces offering panoramic London views

  • Fully equipped gym with classes + PT sessions available

  • Private phone booths throughout: for quiet, focused work or undisturbed calls

  • Variety of social spaces foster community + connectivity: everyone has access to front half of the building with café, large reception + residency space


🎈Bonus feature

On the architects' inspiration: “We studied the architecture of the Knowledge Quarter buildings to inform our design. We wanted the design to reference an institution, without being institutional. One of the hero points was the traditional reading room. To echo this, we created a hidden co-working lounge – a space that cannot be seen from the outside – its hidden nature lends the feeling it's privilege to be there”.
