Oktra doubles office space after 254% growth in 5 years

The design and build company’s London office was originally designed four years ago for 90 employees. Now 150 employees strong, Oktra is exercising the lease break at their current workspace.

After commercial growth of 254% in five years and ranking in The Sunday Times Top Track 250, award-winning office design company, Oktra, are relocating and designing their new office.

“The investment in our workspace is essential for Oktra’s future growth, and will strengthen our position in the market,” says Oktra CEO Pete Dalzell.

Oktra has recently designed offices for Adidas, Gymshark, Photobox Group and Fora, and are using the same methodology to design their own workspace. The design and build program will take a total of 24 weeks, split into three phases; listen, design and build.

Oktra are scheduled to move to the Johnson Building in Clerkenwell, London’s design hub, in April 2020. The new workplace will be twice the size of their current office and will feature three floors connected by a series of staircases and a central atrium.

Each level is designed with a different function in mind, featuring The Den (an underground design library, zen room and focus work area), The Hub (a central meeting point for staff and visitors complete with different work settings, meeting rooms, a lounge area and bar), and The Sky (the upper floor fostering team collaboration with multi-functional work settings).

“In times of accelerating change,” adds Creative Director Nic Pryke, “how can a business accurately predict a five-year future plan? Our new office will be flexible, with the ability to adapt and morph to the changing needs of the business.”

The real innovation will come from the way employees use the new office. Teams will rotate within the space, moving location periodically – a flexible update that will break down silos within teams and support fluid communication patterns.

Oktra’s new office is designed to accommodate rapid growth; empowering teams to continue creating spaces that inspire people to do amazing things.
