Office provider One Crown Court recently hired workplace design firm Oktra to design their new office in London, England.
“Working in partnership with Boulter Mossman property consultants, we delivered a Cat A+ fit out at One Crown Court for a client of Priority Real Estate. Our client wanted to optimise their asset and speed up the occupancy process by offering neutral ‘plug and play’ space ready for new tenants to move in and customise. We worked closely with the client’s project manager to shape an office design that would appeal to businesses looking to let a flexible workspace immediately.
With the aim of creating a ‘blank slate’ for future tenants, we developed a modern, clean design that utilised elements of the previous Cat A fit out including acoustic Echophon panels. The gridded ceiling allowed us to easily integrate the design with the building services and add linear lighting across the working floor. Subtle design features inspired by the geometry of the building continue with Crittall-style glazing, hexagonal splashback tiles at the teapoint, and feature pendant lighting.
The front of house space includes a professional meeting suite and is designed with client-facing businesses in mind, while open plan desks, comfortable breakout spaces and a teapoint are available to employees. With the floor plate wrapping around a corner of the building, the office layout lends itself well to having a back of house meeting suite which provides a more intimate meeting setting softened with a teal feature wall and oak slatted ceiling.
By working collaboratively with all parties involved, we delivered an optimised office space that is sure to attract modern tenants looking to embrace agile work practices and the flexible work trends that are fast becoming integral to future-facing businesses.”
