Area completed the vibrant and well-connected space for London Executive Offices (LEO) located in London, England. LEO specialises in luxury executive serviced offices in vibrant, well-connected areas of London. The company is expanding rapidly and secured the top two floors of Park House – a modern mixed-use building off Oxford Street – in order to provide its most spectacular, distinctive coworking space yet.
Like other LEO premises the offices had to appeal to a high-end audience expecting elegant, sophisticated furnishings and facilities. The space had to integrate an executive lounge, meeting rooms, refreshment areas and serviced office suites in a unique, aesthetically appealing whole that would help LEO to stand out in an increasingly crowded market.
Having worked with LEO on three previous projects, we were prepared for the client’s keen desire for something imaginative and different. The open, spacious layout takes full advantage of the dramatic double-height curved walls and roof, with expanses of glazing that flood the space with light.
The client wanted to create a ‘fantastic journey’ through the space, and there are plenty of unique, offbeat features to catch the eye. Joinery is used to great effect, notably the unusual teepees and long, arching fin wall in the lounge and the suspended ceiling frameworks festooned with greenery. Whilst the building provides a flood of natural daylight, the feature lighting is contemporary and a feature in itself, from the giant stooping floor lamps to pendants that resemble glowing white globes.
The design combines character, style and elegance with a welcoming ambience provided by modern but comfortable furniture and generous biophilic touches. Park House is a worthy addition to LEO’s growing portfolio of attractive, high-quality serviced offices.
