Oktra were announced as five-star winners for two projects at The 2023 UK Property Awards ceremony – the highest level given at the awards for those nominated.
The UK Property Awards is part of the wider International Property Awards, which celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating in all sectors of the property and real estate industry. This year’s event in London saw Oktra’s work on projects with Feldberg Capital and Facepunch Studios win awards in Best Commercial Renovation and Best Office Interior respectively.
Alongside MAPP, Oktra worked on a new scheme with Feldberg Capital at Mosaic East as part of the Akoya portfolio earlier in 2023, designed to meet modern tenant demands with sustainable, occupier-ready workspaces. The resulting renovation has breathed new life into Knollys & Stephenson House, and will be a hub for tenants looking for stylish, flexible office space in an up-and-coming area of London.
For independent game developer Facepunch Studios, Oktra designed a one-of-a-kind destination office. The unique workspace includes a variety of working, gaming and social spaces to draw staff and visitors into the office, and features a distinctive design to ensure everyone entering the office lives and breathes the Facepunch brand.
Alongside achieving five-star accolades in London, Oktra were also announced as the winner in the wider United Kingdom categories for both projects, meaning four awards in total on the night.
The awards were as follows:
• Best Commercial Renovation / Redevelopment London
• Best Commercial Renovation / Redevelopment United Kingdom
• Best Office Interior London
• Best Office Interior United Kingdom
