With special attention paid to sustainability in all its forms, Modus Workspace has unveiled its latest workplace design for digital consultancy firm Publicic Sapient. Having acquired two additional floors within the building, Modus worked closely with Sapient on strict sustainability standards, reusing much of the existing materials left by the previous tenant and ensuring the space-planning phases minimised demolition and technical interventions.

Central to the project was the active participation of Sapient’s team, from interns to leaders, ensuring a diverse array of insights shaped the unrestricted design narrative across new collaborative spaces, including a serene library and lively barista bar. This collaborative effort led to a space that not only meets varied working styles but also embraces cultural and neurological diversity, including a bright blue staircase that serves as a striking design element and enhances navigational ease.

Reflecting its diverse and multi-generational workforce, the space is not confined to a single theme; unfolding through a thoughtfully curated colour palette that transitions from the subdued to vibrant, deliberately selected to accommodate neurodiverse individuals. Local artwork has been selected to instil a sense of belonging and connection, and biophilic elements, such as planting and wooden finishes contribute to the improved air quality within the workspace, furthering employee wellbeing.

Enhancing the sensory design, Modus partnered with The Acoustics Company to optimise auditory comfort without compromising the workspace’s open-plan ethos. Attention to sensory details extends to strategic space planning, creating distinct ‘destinations’ within the office, like a library, café-inspired teapoint and a bar, encouraging employees to explore the space, move between floors and form new working relationships.

Recycled furniture from Modus’s sister company Platfform was thoughtfully selected alongside sustainable pieces including Flokk’s HÅG Tion task chairs and the Arik Levy-designed Geta sofa made using 100% renewable energy and sustainably sourced timber. Modulyss carpet tiles were used throughout the new floors, made from 54% recycled content, and Baux wall panels were integrated for their eco-friendly materiality and acoustic properties.
