Omidyar Network office by Oktra, London – UK

April 21st, 2017 by retail design blog

Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm that works across the social, business and government sectors. Their team invests in both for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations and helps transform ideas into successful ventures.

The decision for Omidyar to relocate was prompted by an approaching lease end and a desire for an improved workspace. Their main concern with their previous office was the poor acoustics in the building and insufficient space to accommodate an increased number of employees. Omidyar had a clear vision for their office.

They wanted natural finishes and a tasteful colour palette to be used across all materials. They sought a sophisticated and understated working environment. Oktra constructed an open plan office space with thirty-five workstations alongside an open plan breakout area and roof terrace.

The layout of the workspace included a large boardroom and multiple meeting rooms, cellular and informal, to accommodate both client and internal meetings in a vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere.

In order to address their previous workplace challenges, Oktra consulted an acoustic engineer to achieve sufficient acoustic levels in their new workspace. Overall, Omidyar Network were impressed with the management of the project and are extremely pleased with their new office.
