English Heritage, a charity organization that manages over 400 of England’s historic buildings, monuments and sites, recently relocated into a new office, located in the heart of London.
“The brief was to create an exciting new space that encouraged staff to work in a more collaborative way, providing them with a more engaging environment. The large breakout space is a key element in this design and it offers staff a distinct space, separate from the desking, where staff can socialise and work collaboratively. The vibrant manifestations throughout the meeting rooms and wider office space inject colour into the space but also proudly showcases the unique work of English Heritage. The tea point and break out area are multi-purpose spaces and offer a huge amount of flexibility in the office. The tea point draws people from their desks and provides a new communal hub to the office. Introducing the sofas and soft seating serves as a breakout space but also offers staff an alternative working environment away from their desk. Having a range of meeting spaces to accommodate staff visiting from other locations was important to English Heritage and having left a more traditional, cellular environment, we wanted to create a variety of meeting environments,” says Peldon Rose
