A bold and unique approach to workplace from Daytrip

With working life changing abruptly in the last few months, this office in Clerkenwell is a great example of how workplaces can blur the boundaries between work and home.

22/06/2020 2 min read

In Spring 2019, Daytrip.studio was approached to design a new workplace environment for a media company in Clerkenwell. Set over three floors of an 18th century industrial warehouse, the existing shell features raw brick and Crittall windows, with a rooftop pavilion and terrace.

The brief included the need for cellular, individual workspaces with only a small proportion of open plan studio space, plus a complete floor for a flexible lounge and meeting rooms. From the outset, Daytrip were encouraged to create a bold and totally unique approach to workplace interiors.

Building upon a reinterpretation of strong feminine aesthetics, the team looked at references of 1950s kitchens, Hollywood glamour and the orange-hazed vibe of Californian club houses. The results are a daring and eclectic approach to colour and a mix of materials that range from the industrial – plywood, pigmented MDF and passivated zinc – contrasting with luxe finishes of high gloss lacquer, deep velvets and plush carpets in lipstick red and acid yellow.

The bold and varied mix of furniture and joinery take their cues from different eras – key mid-century pieces are mixed in with seventies vintage finds. Dietar Rams fibreglass armchairs and Vernor Panton lights are harmonised with contemporary meeting room furniture, upholstered in classic 1920s fabrics. Daytrip.studio worked closely with Viaduct to source these along with bespoke and customised solutions.

Comfort and usability were key to the design choices, and the client was keen to ensure their employees could work comfortably and creatively without distraction. Each office and meeting area is equipped with wipeable glass panel and pin-able surfaces to workshop ideas, and centralised kitchens encourage communal moments.
