When Havas, one of the world’s leading global communications groups, chose to consolidate 1700 employees across seven London locations into one new 10 storey headquarters building in King’s Cross, the design had to be reflective of a modern creative business and one that would spark creativity and collaboration across a number of disciplines. Central to the inspirational fit-out of this landmark ‘vertical village’ was the seamless integration of Optima’s bespoke glass partitioning systems.

MCM Architecture Ltd
For what was an intricate and complex project delivered under a very tight programme, Optima worked with architect MCM and main contractor Structuretone to create offices, breakout spaces and meeting rooms where acoustic performance and design aesthetics of glass partitioning was paramount.
Optima developed a number of bespoke solutions including single glazed Shoreditch Edition glass screens and doors with their distinctive lattice framework. A stunning feature of the auditorium, used to host company events and large company meetings, are the Shoreditch Edition pocket sliding doors within Revolution 100 double glazing, along with pivoting glass doors.
All of the Shoreditch Edition glazing incorporates the architect’s non-uniform ‘Mondrian’ pattern, which brings a unique industrial warehouse feel to this contemporary workspace.
Havas’s new King’s Cross headquarters is an impressive 165,000 sq ft building with exquisite design features. The unique and intricate non-uniform ‘Mondrian’ pattern to the glass screens and doors meant that attention to detail and precision on site were critical. Our design expertise and ability to deliver a complex scheme proved key to the project’s successful completion. We collaborated with MCM throughout to ensure their vision became a reality.
