BuckleyGrayYeoman has completed a 60,000 sq ft fit-out for The Office Group (TOG), the British pioneer of flexible workspaces and co-working spaces.
Spanning across three floors, the adaptable workspace and additional club areas are located at an intersection of Bloomsbury Way and New Oxford Street, benefitting from the building’s close proximity to Holborn and Tottenham Court Road tube stations as well as the future Elizabeth Line.
The project is inspired by The Bloomsbury Group of writers, artists and intellectuals and evokes the sense of a private members’ club. Throughout, statement pieces such as a Grand Piano and a Gramophone embellish classic vintage interiors that are brought up to date with crisp and meticulous detailing.
Eclectic workspaces are located off a central avenue and the refurbishment also includes meeting rooms, breakout areas, round tables, shared work tables and booth seating.
The scheme also incorporates unique facilities for TOG members such as a Vinyl library, a welcoming lounge area, phone booths and a reading room.
The material palette for the fit out comprises fumed oak surfaces, Bolon flooring and subtle bare walls, which are heightened by bronze detailing and exposed iron structures. Inlaid rich green leather desks, terracotta tiles and simplistic lighting also enhance the design.
