A Look Inside Crowe UK’s Modern London Office
Accounting firm Crowe UK recently hired workplace design studio Oktra to design their new office in London, England.
“We began building a workplace capable of bringing their teams together. With a variety of meeting room environments and breakout space in their central atrium, this workspace is somewhere their clients and their staff can thrive, prioritising wellbeing and design features which harmonise with the building’s location.
Design elements like the booths and half-arches throughout the space mimic the properties of the trainline running beneath the building, while the patterned flooring evokes the iconic fabrics of the London tube. The central atrium space features a 4m-tall petrified tree at its centre, acting as the charismatic centrepiece to this collaborative breakout area. Natural daylight is optimised throughout the space, with workstations lining the outside of the building.
Crowe UK LLP’s new workplace also has its own front of house space, featuring a lounge where clients can liaise with in-house staff, socialise, or even use as their own agile working environment. Striking design features such as pivoting bronze mirror fins, which bounce light around the space, also provide an element of privacy. The variety of workspaces, from phone booths and quiet areas to open workspaces and large meeting rooms, gives Crowe UK LLP the fresh, playful and professional space they need to work towards their business objectives.”
