Inside Capital Economics’ New London Office
Capital Economics, an independent economic research company that provides macroeconomic, financial market and sectoral analysis and forecasts, recently reached out to interior design firm Oktra, to design their new offices in London.
“Having reached the end of their tenancy agreement, the organisation were looking to relocate to a new office space. Capital Economics were originally based in an older more traditional building spread over multiple floors with small windows and dark interiors. Having outgrown this space, they wanted to relocate to a more modern and expansive environment on one large floor. Working with their senior management team, we conducted several design workshops and detailed interviews to gain an understanding of their vision. They wanted a light and timeless interior with an elegant front of house. We proposed using a conservative colour palette of warm timbers and grey tones with subtle branding to create a classic and sophisticated design. We carried out a full CAT A and CAT B fit out; completely stripping out the building to construct their new workspace. The final design includes: a front of house, an open plan working area, a breakout space and various cellular meeting rooms. Through intelligent design, we have created a working environment that works for each and every individual to support Capital Economics’ overall goal and strategic vision”, says Oktra
