Campaigning charity 38 Degrees asked us to design a new office space for them. The old layout was cramped, inflexible and uninspiring. Our brief was to create a series of varied, flexible work areas that could respond to the changing demands presented by varying project teams they form during the year.
To optimise the restricted budget we made use of recycled timber and repurposed some of their existing desks, alongside new custom-built furniture, made by our partner Empatika.
A unique hexagonal carpet design helped to subtlely define areas of the space within an open plan layout and introduce hints of their branding. The outcome? A beautiful set of unified and varied working areas with a light, calm and spacious feel, that fosters effective team working and improves staff wellbeing.

‘It’s a whole lot brighter, and feels a lot more modern than our old office. The space just helps people feel more relaxed and when people feel more relaxed they’re more creative’
