    London W1K / Investment Management / 8,500 sq ft / 13 weeks

  • Revitalising office space

    Our client, a prominent technology investment company, recognised the need for a transformative change within their London office. Their existing space had become outdated, failing to reflect the company’s vision and aspirations. Inspired by the recent refurbishment of their New York office, the firm embarked on a journey to reimagine their Mayfair headquarters. They wanted to optimise the utilisation of their three-floor layout, comprising central operations space, a dedicated client floor, and an exclusive gym and wellness area, to foster a more efficient working environment capable of accommodating their expanding teams.

  • Elevating client experience

    In an effort to tailor the client experience, we have purposefully separated client and staff spaces. Guests are welcomed into a sophisticated reception area on the 4th floor which is designed to embody our client’s brand and leave a lasting impression of the business. The rest of the floor is made up of meeting suites boasting luxury marble tabletops and natural wood joinery. Complementing the base build with sleek dark grey finishes, these suites seamlessly integrate with the environment, offering panoramic views of the Mayfair area and providing ample natural light to create a light and airy atmosphere.

  • Enhancing staff productivity

    Recognising the importance of nurturing a cohesive and productive work culture, we helped the firm to enhance their staff areas. A teapoint for employees previously located on the fourth floor client suite was relocated to the third floor closer to staff areas with higher footfall. The bright and inviting teapoint provides staff members with space to relax away from their work areas, which are primarily comprised of singular and three to four person cellular offices. Each workspace features sit-stand desks, empowering employees to adapt their environment to their unique needs, whilst double-glazed partitions were employed to optimise acoustics, fostering a peaceful and focused atmosphere throughout the office.

  • Empowering their workforce

    Departing from the previous heavy use of wood, the new space embraces a lighter, neutral aesthetic, artfully incorporating natural wood and rich blue finishes that complement their bright brand colour. The top floor gym and shower spaces also underwent refurbishment to adhere with their brand identity, including sleek navy tiling and calming graphics. This space provides our client’s staff with a dedicated wellness area within easy access of their workspace and aims to promote the health and wellbeing of employees while fuelling their motivation levels, ensuring a workforce that is both inspired and energised.

  • The firm’s refurbished office space now provides a working environment that exudes sophistication, promotes collaboration, and nurtures the wellbeing of their employees, and has aligned their global workspaces to establish a refreshed business identity.
