Workspace of the Week - Brandpie Offices, London
Rejecting the idea of a traditional workplace, Brandpie selected design and build company Peldon Rose to create a space that was unique, and fosters connections, collaboration, and creativity.
Brandpie is a company which does things differently. The global consultancy rips up the rule book when it comes to helping clients discover and activate their purpose and it wanted a workspace as disruptive as it is. Rejecting the idea of a traditional workplace, Brandpie selected design and build company Peldon Rose to create a space that was unique, and fosters connections, collaboration, and creativity – not an office, but a clubhouse. The 2,500 sq ft site on Great Marlborough Street in central London was the perfect location for a clubhouse that would allow people to work flexibly, yet efficiently.
Creativity, community, and sustainability were at the centre of the design. This meant no meeting rooms, flexible adaptive spaces, and no fixed areas to foster an environment of creativity and transparency. It needed to be both informal and collaborative.
From the beginning, Peldon Rose worked in close partnership with Brandpie, holding workshops to understand how far the company wanted to push the boundaries of the modern office, whilst striking the correct balance between innovation and practicality.
The finished product is a multidimensional, warming environment, which can be easily adapted for different needs. It features an airport-style lounge, which immediately welcomes anyone and everyone into the space, with an informal yet attractive atmosphere. There is a dedicated area where employees and visitors can grab a drink, featuring adjustable mood lighting to create a day to night transition – coffee shop by day, and bar by night. Peldon Rose also designed and created a bespoke ring light, which was like nothing they had done before, featuring a ‘daylight wash’ filter to create a natural environment, for which a number of suppliers had to be sourced to help make it a reality.
Whilst Brandpie is focused on discovering and defining purpose for its clients, it too is a purpose-led business. This meant that a major consideration for the new space was its sustainability credentials, with the project achieving an SKA Gold rating. Employee wellbeing is a top priority for Brandpie and the company believes that freedom of choice helps breed a level of comfort and sparks excellence. This new office demonstrates their commitment, offering a place not just for work, but to socialise, collaborate and importantly enjoy the working day.
