The brief was to design modern office spaces that supported St. Modwen’s core values; bringing people together, looking after people and place, and focusing on the future. The refurbished offices embrace modern workplace principles, offering a variety of flexible and productive work and breakout spaces.
Bespoke joinery coupled with carefully selected furniture pieces and light fittings give a contemporary look. The creative use of finishes and materials has resulted in intrinsic acoustic quality. No detail is overlooked – this extends to artwork, wayfinding, planting, the quality of materials used and coordination with other consultants.
The workspaces include general hot desking, private offices, bespoke storage, lockers, kitchen and tea point areas, meeting rooms, collaborative working zones, private offices, ‘quiet booths’, informal breakout areas, as well as the latest audio-visual technology. The smaller office at Great Portland Street, London did away with a traditional reception, in favour of a large sitting area with an intentionally relaxed, almost homely feel.
