A Tour of PPL’s New London Office
PPL, a UK music organization responsible for licensing music played in public and then distributing the license fees to the performer and rights holders, recently hired office design firm Peldon Rose, to design heir new offices, located in London’s Soho neighborhood.
“PPL are responsible for licensing music played in public and then distributing the license fees to the performer and rights holders. The new office design at their office in 1 Upper James Street, Soho reflects the creativity and energy of their industry. Our office refurbishment project with PPL was initiated by their growth as they increased the headcount in their building. They wanted to optimise their office space to add in more desking and also free up space to create areas for staff that would enable more integration and somewhere for staff to relax away from their desks. By refurbishing their office space, PPL could make a more positive use of their office space and create a new layout across the floors which allowed them to use the space more intelligently. Following staff engagement surveys, PPL wanted a space for their workforce to engage with each other, to relax, to have fun but also to have a place for quiet work and meetings. Their previous office floors were set up in a very traditional style which relied on closed off cellular meeting spaces and traditional work stations. By proposing a new office design and space plan, we released the entire fifth floor to create a flexible space that creates a destination to encourage staff to collaborate, improve cross departmental communications and support meetings in an open plan, agile environment”, says Peldon Rose
