Buro Happold are a globally recognised company of structural engineers, whose innovative projects in the UK include the Wembley Stadium and Olympic Park. Their 20,000 sq ft office on Newman Street, in Central London needed to include flexible open plan offices for their mobile workforce, as well as client-facing spaces suitable for events, seminars and exhibitions. Interaction were given this brief when they were appointed by Buro Happold to carry out the design and refurbishment.
The design focused on keeping with the modern aesthetic of other Buro Happold offices. A clean benching system was proposed, to allow variable numbers of occupants to drop in. A high performance meeting and exhibition area was also created using double glazed, acoustic, moveable walls from Duvale.
The result of the 20,000 sq ft refurbishment is a workplace to be proud of, and reflects the culture and brand of Buro Happold. The minimal and flexible design allows the team to work effectively and Interaction were delighted to have then been asked to continue this refurbishment, on additional floors in the building.
