Project summary

Our client’s ambition for change was a salient aspect of this workplace brief. The client was embarking on a period of significant transformation; changing the way they work to deliver the best possible experience for clients, staff and partners.

Across the 14 level workplace, designed to support an agile workforce, 3 key specialist levels house large gathering spaces, primary staff support and wellbeing spaces and key security and technology infrastructure.

At the heart of the workplace, a sculptural stair, that is simultanesouly fluid and efficient, weaves it way between floors facilitiating spontaneous exchange and intuitive navigation. It serves to breakdown silos and contributes to a sense of transparency and curiosity.

Designed prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the new workplace is the embodiment of an organisation that continues to adopt new ways of working and relies on a safe, secure and responsive workplace to support a highly engaged workforce.
