Threefold Architects deliver new coworking space Paddington Works

Inspired by Brunel’s iconic station, the design uses a limited palette of simple and robust materials that give the the space an industrial and civic quality.

13/04/2021 1 min read

Set across the ground and first floors of a mixed-use development in the Paddington Basin, Paddington Works is a 15,000 sq ft co-working and events space designed by Threefold Architects. The scheme comprises private studios, open co-working areas, meeting rooms, seminar space, and an auditorium. Developed as a joint venture between Space Paddington and Westminster Council, Paddington Works offers high quality business space at affordable rents to local start-ups.

Informed by the practice’s ongoing research into the potential for wellness principles to create happier and healthier places to work, the space integrates innovative air filtration systems, adaptive lighting, and shallow floor plates in order to allow an abundance of natural light into every room. The air circulation system brings at least 25% more fresh air into the building compared to other commercial spaces and an intelligent lighting system adjusts the colour temperature of the light throughout the day – in line with circadian rhythms.

The design creates a space for interaction and collaboration, with ‘clusters’ intended to create smaller communities or neighbourhoods within the wider workplace. Each cluster is centred around a kitchen and social space, and includes informal breakout and meeting areas, phone booths, meeting rooms, private studios and shared workstations. Bespoke detailing throughout the space cleverly hides the more utilitarian office fixtures, subtly blending functionality and craft – such as magnetic oak flooring covering outlets and perforated metal covers discretely disguising the air filtration units.
