INTERNATIONAL

Responding
to
History

The Office Group (TOG) has more than 40 shared workspaces, mostly across London,
and plans to open seven more next year, including buildings in Notting Hill, Covent
Garden, and King's Cross. What makes TOG different from other co-working
providers is that rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach, each building is
individually designed, depending on the architecture of the building and the type of
market the building will attract. As a result, TOG takes a very considered approach to
design and works with a variety of architects to ensure they get each individual
building right. TOG's approach to interior design starts with assessing each building's
unique architectural characteristics and considering what type of members will work
in the building. The design team then collaborates with a variety of architects to
develop a bespoke design concept for each building. With a diverse set of buildings,
from old warehouses in Shoreditch and train stations in King's Cross, to 1960s office
blocks and two floors in the Shard, TOG's approach ensures that each building's
integrity is maintained. Here we take a look at some of TOG's London locations.

Wardour Street, Soho, London
For their Soho space, TOG and Architects Universal Design
were inspired by the pop art of the iconic bars, restaurants and
cafes of Soho. They created a series of abstract graphic spaces,
incorporating blocks of color and playful materials like indigo denim
upholstery and curtains, recycled plastic and linoleum surfaces,
and perforated aluminum.

Gridiron Building, King's Cross, London
The interiors of The Office Group occupy three floors and make
reference to the patterns of the exterior cast iron pillars of this
iconic David Chipperfield building-which, in turn, is a respectful
nod to King's Cross' Victorian past.

24 Greville Street, Farrindgon, London
Taking cues from the craft of the Farringdon neighborhood,
from diamond jewellers to cocktail mixologists, TOG and Shed
interior designers and architects celebrated maker culture by
updating the converted warehouse building with crafted details
and contemporary planes of texture, and created the rugged beauty
of the engineering workshop with matt black and brass finishes.

East Side, Kings Cross, London
The two floors of offices in the iconic King's Cross Station
have been comprehensively refurbished revealing the original
brickwork and steel and iron features of the building, originally
design by Lewis Cubitt.

Thomas House, Victoria, London
Architects and designers SODA have contrasted the exterior
of the grand, regency-styled facade with an unashamedly minimal
and calming interior, taking inspiration from classical regency
proportions and the rich history of the site itself. Natural materials
and plants give a sense of wellbeing throughout, which is
complemented with meditation rooms, a music room, a library,
a cavernous and two garden terraces with views across the city.

91 Rivington, Shoreditch, London
Working with architects Wells Mackereth on the refurbishment
of this 1930s building in East End London, TOG brought out the
original art-deco features, great natural light and floor-to-ceiling
heights, with a green roof terrace available to all, a range of offices
in all shapes and sizes, meeting rooms, event spaces, and extensive
green features.
