A Bold Move

Patrick Morgan were previously based in a WeWork in Canary Wharf but wanted to change the way they worked and utilised the workplace. Their move to Hackney Wick exemplifies a bold, out-of-the-box approach to redefining not just the location but the concept of their workplace.

Crafting a Home Away from Home

Having purchased a shell and core unit, Patrick Morgan envisioned a home-from-home workspace that would resonate with their young team – a place that seamlessly blended the comforts of home with the convenience of a WeWork plus the added bonuses of a space in a local community which the team could personalise as the business grew.

Creative Challenges

Lightly branded, bold colours and soft furnishings have made the space a real destination point and encouraged the team to get work together in a more collaborative way.

Transforming a shell and core unit posed its unique challenges, demanding flexibility and swift decision-making on-site. Our team rose to the occasion, optimising the budget, floor plan, and installation of essential office amenities.

The project boasts a bespoke kitchen and tea point, wet room DDA compliant shower and brand-new HVAC system. The industrial ceiling is complimented by the minimalistic approach and slim light fittings to encourage as much ceiling height as possible and keep the space feeling timeless but modern.
