UK TV’s new head office was one of the first solar-powered buildings entirely equipped with LED lighting in London. It offers a workspace that focuses clearly on creative freedom, lively communication and constructive co-working in just over 32,300 sqft of space distributed over two floors. The global designers of PENSON created the interior design.
Traditional offices are interspersed with areas for informal discussions and private retreat. The open architecture is cleverly divided into zones by furnished islands and accentuated with oddities like oversized parrot heads. Vintage furniture and 1980s charm figure throughout the lively office landscape, which is intentionally allowed to be jarring, vibrant and loud.
Not only the open staircase in the center of the space serves as a continuous element linking the two floors. Particularly XAL ceiling luminaires arranged in lines following the ceiling grid and compelling wood floor boards bring structure and order back to the open space.
