    London N1C / Financial / 30,000 sq ft / 22 weeks

  • Envisioned

    Financial firm, NewDay, appointed us to design a bold and modern 30,000 sq ft workspace in a magnificent Victorian building.

    They wanted a design that maximised space to promote collaborative working. Together with the NewDay team, our designers held several brainstorming workshops to conceptualise the final design concepts.

  • Shaped

    Our team selected a specialist structural engineer to help develop a complex structural scheme.

    Our vision was to create a contemporary design whilst retaining the building’s original mid-18th century features. To achieve this, we inserted intriguing landscapes and modern shapes against the period brickwork backdrop.

  • Transformed

    The space includes 300 fixed workstations, open plan desking and several meeting pods over an expansive café area.

    To enhance creativity and productivity we provided NewDay with 75% more meeting space through clever structural space planning. The space allows NewDay to choose how, when and where they work by offering a range of work settings. Each area is designed for a different type of task.

  • ‘Oktra understood our brief and it was a partnership; a really fun and collaborative experience. We are absolutely delighted with the finished product.’
