ContractorBW: Workplace Experts
Firstly, for the transformation of levels 8 and 9, we joined forces with MCM Architecture and contractor BW: Workplace Experts. Subsequently, together we created an imaginative workplace which would allow collaboration and communication amongst the Condé Nast staff. The client specified the glass partitions to allow for the flow of natural light. Furthermore, we installed Reeded glass allowing visual connectivity across the two floors, whilst at the same time creating quiet spaces for private working.
Secondly, we installed glass partitions to create a series of executive offices, meeting rooms and quiet rooms over two floors. With their distinctive lattice framework, Shoreditch Edition glass partitions and doors were also used in some areas to bring an architecturally striking, yet minimalist look to the working environment.
There is a growing trend for modern workplaces to reflect a raw, industrial warehouse style. As a result, we developed our Optima 117 Plus Shoreditch Edition, which is an enhanced version of the standard Optima 117 Plus system. Subsequently, this features a slim line aluminium latticework which is bonded to the glass. Therefore, the system retains both structural stability and acoustic performance.
On level 9, MCM’s unique design incorporates hot desk areas to support agile working. Collaboration spaces have been installed where colleagues can come together to share thoughts and ideas. These areas are located next to a series of quiet rooms to provide a balance between public spaces designed to encourage interaction and private areas for quiet conversations and work to take place. Furthermore, on level 8 there is also a quiet lounge, where staff can relax, think and work creatively.
Commenting on the project, Liam Marshall, Optima’s Project Manager, said: “We applied a unique Reeded film to the glass partitions to create a visually striking effect whilst at the same time offering visual privacy to the meeting rooms. The Reeded film simulates actual Reeded glass in an incredibly effective way and has the added benefit of being more cost effective than rolled patterned glass.”
In short, with the transformation of this 25,000 sq ft space now complete, the use of Shoreditch Edition glazing and Reeded manifestation at Condé Nast has created an innovative workspace at the cutting edge of design, in keeping with one of the world’s leading media companies.
