Following recent business expansion, our client – a premier supplier of audio, voice IC and software solutions – acquired new office space in London to both support their continued growth and to attract talent within the tech sector.
Encompassing the CAT B development of the first floor of Marble Arch House, the design needed to not only reflect their cool and quirky personality, but also retain the integrity of the Grade A office building.
The client’s new workspace is located across a single floor plate and comprises both open plan and cellular office space, breakout zones to encourage collaboration, as well as specialist work areas including a Comms Room and Audio Lab – all of which were defined and planned during a series of development meetings.
The innovative design embraces both Marble Arch House’s modern architecture and the look and feel of the client’s global headquarters in the USA. The front of house area displays a ‘raw’ aesthetic, using sawn timber cladding and a poured resin floor, and is mixed with high gloss black features and exposed services. In contrast, the office area is a neutral space, with white desking and pale tones implemented throughout. All workstations now feature fully electronic height adjustable systems.
"It was an absolute joy to work with such a forward thinking client, who was receptive to our ideas of how to overcome the project challenges; having such a strong relationship with the client enabled us to deliver their requirements to an exceptional standard."
Simon Twigg, Project Director
