On the Friday 27th February, we celebrated the official opening of WeWork’s second community in London with a launch party which saw over 300 people attend.
The new Soho space was fitted out by us to create a coworking, meeting and collaboration space.
If you don’t already know, WeWork is a platform for creators and provides space, community and services to help companies work to make a life, not just a living. Its ambition is to build beautiful shared office spaces based on a community. Since it started in 2010 it has taken America by storm and now WeWork has moved to London with offices in the Southbank, Soho and very soon East London.
At Oktra we’re excited to be involved in WeWork’s adventure, as design and build specialists we know the importance of creating a community spirit in the working environment and we’ve witnessed a shift over the last year with more companies taking full advantage of their office fit out or office refurbishment to create environments, similar to WeWork, that blend quiet spaces with a mix of coworking style environments, which encourage collaboration, engage and inspire the workforce.
