The Liverpool street location boasts light and airy interiors full of plants and foliage, a healthy snack and coffee lounge, meeting rooms, showers, phone booths and an outdoor terrace.
The Liverpool Street location features over 1,000 plants to help filter the air and provide a sense of tranquillity by softening the edges of their surroundings. The centrepiece is a 5-metre Ficus Benhamina tree situated in the central atrium on the top floor communal space, surrounded by hanging chairs, providing the perfect place to relax and get into the zone.
The design concept focuses on the area within, exposing the original ceiling to provide maximum height and painting walls in light neutral tones to allow for the contents of the interior to inject colour and character. Fixtures and furnishings sourced from Italian artisan designers, Selected for their ergonomic qualities provide a luxurious and refined presence. Stand out pieces include two large custom-designed co-working tables from Riva 1920, cut from a single tree trunk, bespoke meeting room tables and sideboards from Cattelan, specially designed angular polished Portoro marble bars, brass and bronze detailing, smoked glass shelving, a feature fireplace made from perforated extruded metalwork and hand-crafted, walnut-clad relaxation pods.
The reception features a one of a kind interactive light installation, from designer and artist, Marcus Lyall titled 'In a Heartbeat'. By placing a finger onto the Blood Volume Flow Sensor, the installation works out the heart rate and variability of the participant, showcasing the heartrate through music and light.
Heart Rate Variability is considered to be a good indicator of stress levels and heart health, with high levels of stress demonstrating a metronome in the visuals, compared to a smooth groove rhythm for those who are less stressed. The visuals are designed to take participants away from the everyday business of work-life, which shows the pulse magnified, and the behaviour of both the visuals and music influenced by heart rate and HRV.
