50 New Bond Street    Urban&Civic Plc

Following the merger of two organisations to form a property development and investment company, we were challenged with designing a new headquarters to bring the combined workforces together. We have worked for Urban&Civic for several years across multiple scales, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to design the company’s new workplace.

It was a significant opportunity for the two companies to re-brand their new office space and to combine their working cultures, incorporate new ways of working, whilst also reinforcing their individual characters. Located in a partially grade II listed building, two distinct areas were provided in the office for staff and clients. A new open-plan space offers a more democratic and collaborative environment and improved communication, introducing bold splashes of colour, compared to the cellular arrangement of their previous offices. The client area compliments the listed part of the building with a classic and paired down design unified by natural oak furniture throughout.
