The clients wanted a plurality of spaces that could provide for a range of encounters - from the unplanned to the scheduled.

A home from home
Return To The Office
This boutique office on Bond Street is home to a team of 8, who are keen to return to their office after a 2.5 year hiatus working from home. Their day is split between meeting clients and working solely at their desks but need to have enough interaction to know what everyone else is working on.
To help with the transition of returning to the office the company wanted to create a home from home for both the staff and their clients. When they commissioned us we started the process by creating a thoughtful spatial plan in accordance with their day to day needs, dividing spaces in such a way that there is enough privacy when needed, yet keeping the culture for open discourse and collaboration.
A Space To Inspire
Hedge fund office
We created a central island which inherently divides the space between the work zone and social zone. The island is meant to encourage conversation and open meetings throughout the day. The island also acts as a reception area and helps create the illusion of a larger entrance hall. The compromise is leaving the kitchen exposed. This would be made less evident with the right choice of finishes. This allowed us to create a further 2 private zones; a luxury lounge for meetings and a presentation / meeting room for 12 people.
Rows of dark stained wood louvres line the walls and ceilings around the entrance and formal meeting room. We merged this with the use of white stones and glass partitions across the office, as well as light coloured furniture to brighten up the space.
The result is an office with a strong character; using bold, clean and simple elements intertwined to portray the company's leading yet elegant image.
