The client is a tech industry game changer, they are a community of passionate individuals whose purpose it is to revolutionise software design, creation and delivery; while advocating for positive social change. An office relocation was the perfect opportunity for Thoughtworks to create a workplace bespoke to its people and clients. The firm was engaged to create a dynamic space, with an energetic and vibrant aesthetic to drive productivity and nurture the existing culture its people are so proud of. Their teams often come together for fast paced ideation sessions where surfaces become blank canvases for content creation. Our challenge was to enhance this experience and working style, not inhibit it!
Our design offered writable operable walls that move the length of the floorplate to open or close spaces depending on the needs of the team, and client sensitivity. Focus booths are fitted with paper rolls and white boards, so that team members are never too far from a surface to put new ideas on. The business often hosts industry talks and team huddles which we accommodated in the new workplace with a large open plan, flexible breakout space. Here custom bleachers are thoughtfully located for town hall style gatherings, while moveable furniture ensures multi-use of the area when the events are not taking place. Shaw Contract’s carpet and vinyl floor products ensured a smooth transition between spaces helping maintain consistency while emphasising an aesthetic that is vibrant and fun; reflective of the fast-paced culture team members thrive on.
