Californian digital financial services company, InvestCloud have a global presence and required a new London home. They found their home in London’s west end, taking up 6,050sqft in 77 Shaftesbury Avenue. The client required a clean, minimalist space to match their existing offices in LA, New York and Toronto – to name but a few.
We created a detailed space plan to suit the needs of the client whilst making full use of the space.
As you walk in through the entrance, you are greeted with the reception desk on your right and the breakout area on your immediate left. The bespoke breakout bar table was cut specifically for this build; sitting perfectly against the atrium windows overlooking the modern, colour changing waiting area 5 floors below.
Fitted with an instant tap, coffee machine and even a beer tap, the employees have immediate access to all the amenities they could possibly require. A further kitchen area is tucked neatly around the corner, featuring a beautiful corian work surface.
Clean, transparent, floor to ceiling glass partitions have been used to break up the space. The transparency adds to the feel of the space in a way which is almost clinical; something you would expect from a company whose clients manage over 1.7 trillion dollars’ worth of assets.
InvestCloud’s new space allows for all types of collaboration. Informal through the use of the standing room and lounge area, and formal with the minority report room and meeting rooms. Acoustically sound phone booths were also planned into the design to allow for individual work, free from outside distractions and noise.
The electrics and plumbing had a complete overhaul – tailored to compliment the design specifications.
