A Tour of Uber’s London Office Expansion
Uber, a global transportation startup that seamlessly connects passengers with drivers for hire, recently reached out to office design and fit-out firm Denton Associates, to design their new office expansion in London’s Aldgate Tower.
“UBER have a strong design pallet of patterns and colours, which we applied in different ways; from natural wall finishes to fabric choices and joinery details. Using this pallet creatively, Denton were able to give the space a solid identity. Splashes of colour and a play on their pattern created a fun back of house environment with abundant personality. You are welcomed directly into their ‘meet and greet’ area with UBER’s logo standing loud and proud on the contrasting moss wall with the illusion of the sign floating above the moss. The ‘meet and greet’ area is between a run of informal breakout spaces which are all framed with UBER’s brand pattern scorched onto ply. We created a mix of private meeting rooms and informal cubby holes complete with varying furniture and styles, providing the client with the flexibly they required to suit their needs. The furniture on this project brought the whole scheme together. Breakout areas showcase an eclectic mix of soft seating, contrasting fabrics, feature lighting and a back drop of colour giving the UBER space and brand a residential feel,” said Denton Associates
