Cat B fit out
- Start date
- January 2017
When we delivered Adobe’s new UK headquarters at the White Collar Factory in London’s ‘tech city’ the focus was on creating an environment that attracts and retains the best people by offering creative, inspiring, flexible spaces.
From large themed meeting rooms to private phone booths, there are areas for every role, challenge or conversation. ‘Neighbourhoods’, including a tech café, social hub and adventure rooms differ in style, offering something for everyone.
Initially we were appointed to deliver a Cat B fit out for 30,000 sq.ft in 14 weeks, but after Adobe took over another floor during the programme, our remit extended to 45,000 sq.ft. By supporting the client’s design team to procure the package and reworking the programme to absorb a temporary design freeze we delivered levels seven and eight on time and level 13 just six weeks later.
With bespoke design features at every turn, an industrial feature staircase, and the very highest quality finishes throughout, Adobe's UK HQ has been nominated for numerous design awards for the highly flexible work and social spaces that celebrate individuality and encourage freedom of creative thought.
