Stunning Open-Space Revolut Offices by Thirdway Interiors Foster Motivation and Teamwork
By Courtney • Dec 5, 2018
The wide open and ultra modern Revolut Offices, created by Thirdway Interiors located in London, England, are a stunning example of how shared productive space can boost morale and facilitate better teamwork between office members.
Due to a redirection of brand and values, Revolut decided to overhaul entirely by transforming their London offices into a fresh new space that better reflects their refocusing. The new offices, perched on a bustling street in Canary Wharf, resides on the same street as branches of the architectural firm hired for the project, so they were wonderfully equipped to build a space that was cohesive with the atmosphere of their area and the other innovative businesses that function there.
To begin, teams decided to encompass the space with an overall Italian-chic style. This was focus more closely on the desire to create spaces within that the appeared raw yet sophisticated. Colour schemes were kept rather simplistic (spaces are largely black and white), which enhanced a sense of industrial influence, but occasional pops of colour throughout that overall palette saved the area from look too cold or minimalist.
Furnishings were chosen on their ability to be unique yet comfortable, refining the various spaces and delineating their function without calling for actual physical separating, which would have interrupted the open-concept space and worked against the wishes of the clients. Exposed ceilings spray painted in black match the rest of the decor scheme in its dark but not unfriendly industrialism.
Incorporating a subtle sense of fun into the shapes and decor schemes was paramount to the clients because it fell in line with the new direction of their rebranding efforts. Eye catching neon signs stand out in various places, lighting up against concrete blocks with catchy or motivational sayings that provoke thought rather than feeling cheesy or stereotypical to read. Newspaper based collage art provides employees with an inspirational view when they’re feeling distracted; a subliminal reminder of the goals they’re there to achieve through their admirable work.
Besides the elements of fun and pops of colour, two key features keep the office lively, cohesive, and open. These are the wonderfully large windows that allow plenty of uplifting natural light, as well as the fact that there’s free flow between private work stations and more casual break, social, and entertainment of group work areas. This prevents anyone from feeling isolated within their work environment, but still gives them access to less distracting areas on days where their concentration is crucial. Many of these spaces are multi-functional, making them diverse and useful for all kind of different things, depending on the daily needs of the office’s teams.
