Expansion of the London Office

A US hedge fund, and longstanding client of K2 Space, was looking to expand its London office space to support the growing needs of the business. With an overarching goal to blend functionality with sophisticated design, the expansion aimed to create an environment that would resonate with the vibrant nature of the financial services firm. The project brought to life a series of workspaces that not only supported the company’s operational excellence, but also fostered collaboration, innovation, and employee well-being.

Central to the expansion’s success were the social and communal areas, including a sleek kitchenette for informal gatherings, as well as dedicated breakout zones that encouraged relaxed yet productive exchanges. Attention to detail is evident in the choice of ergonomic furnishings, ensuring that comfort and style go hand-in-hand across the office landscape.

Modern Collaboration Space with a View

In the creation of a meeting space for the expansion, the focus was on fostering a collaborative environment that utilised the existing building features. Natural light was available through the extensive window facade, which we furnished with round tables to facilitate conversation, paired with comfortable, modern seating to support prolonged discussions all situated against the panoramic backdrop of London. The choice of comfortable, ergonomically designed chairs was an integral part of the office furniture selection and helped to create an engaging workspace. Each workspace included seamless tech integration within the aesthetic space, supporting the client’s brief to create a workplace that promoted openness and teamwork.

High-Tech Meeting Facilities for Enhanced Collaboration

Tech was a key part of the fit out. State-of-the-art digital screens were installed in meeting rooms, complemented by discreet connectivity solutions, to cater to the tech needs of the client. Privacy and openness were balanced through the use of glass partitions, providing an enclosed space for focused group work without creating a sense of isolation. This configuration was selected to cater to the client’s specific requirements within the projected timeline.

Creating a Relaxation Space within the Workplace

A critical element of the project was the introduction of breakout areas to offer employees a place for informal interactions and relaxation. With a sleek kitchenette featuring wooden and marble finishes, the area was meant to contribute to employee well-being and productivity, reflective of a design approach that values comfort in tandem with style.
