Following a lease expiry in their existing building, Media Insurance relocated to the prestigious 20 Midtown building. In addition to seeing the move as an opportunity to enhance their corporate perception and brand, they also wanted to accommodate additional headcount, as well as improve communication across teams.
Following their move in to the extensively refurbished and remodelled 20 Midtown building, Media Insurance’s modern new workspace has been designed to incorporate the building’s existing M&E infrastructure.
Working within a confined space meant we had to be inventive with its design. Part of the brief was to maximise its visual impact without the space looking cluttered. This was achieved by incorporating a number of ﬂexible working platforms within the half cellular, half open-plan working environment, including an informal breakout space to encourage staﬀ integration. Furthermore, a low-level circular collaboration bench has been installed in the middle of the space to encourage informal meetings and team catch-ups.
The furniture selection, finishes and colour palette were all carefully considered to ensure the available space was maximised to its full potential. This included: a variety of ﬂoor finishes were used to distinguish between the diﬀerent working areas; perimeter lockers were installed to ensure people could work ﬂexibly; and Media Insurance’s branding palette was carefully applied to the furniture and partition glazing to reﬂect their identity and personality.
