A Look Inside London Executive Offices – Nova North
London Executive Offices (LEO), a workspace company that operates a network of executive offices across London, recently hired workplace design firm Area to design one of their newest workspaces located in Nova North building, in London’s Victoria district.
“Area’s brief was to transform three ﬂoors of the Nova North building into a workspace that would appeal to a different type of client – dynamic, creative, progressive. The design needed to be ﬂexible enough to suit a wide range of working styles, from individual cellular offices to touchdown facilities and quiet areas, with a strong emphasis on ﬂexible space. We started with a blank canvas, testing out ideas in close partnership with the client. The LEO team were well informed about current trends and excited about coming up with something fresh and new. Implementing a distinctive LEO style was all the more important given that the nature of the business means there is no corporate branding to characterise and unify the space. This creative process has produced a remarkable result. From the moment of entering the reception, it is clear this is an office like no other. From the impressive joinery of the ﬂoating wood ceilings to the playful pendant luminaires, eccentric ceiling sculptures, mirror surfaces, bespoke hospitality furniture and vibrant green wall, the space exudes character and dynamism. Booths, breakout space and meeting rooms all have their own aesthetic personality. The sixth ﬂoor incorporates client offices, a working lounge, refreshment and touchdown areas and one-to-one booths. The 10th and 11th ﬂoors, with their spectacular views, are dominated by lounge seating and shared space. We worked with LEO to expand the food and beverage oﬀering, developing a serviced club lounge and workspace area on the 11th ﬂoor. Technology, such as AV equipment and wireless charging ports, is particularly well integrated into the space”, says Area
