Woods Bagot designs new 25hours Hotel One Central in Dubai
The new 25hours hotel celebrates the traditions and stories of the area’s ancient nomadic tribes, bringing them to life across different areas of the property.
Using a bold and sophisticated palette, Trifle has established the newest Workspace venture as a proud beacon within a fast-evolving East London hub.
Part of an ongoing relationship with flexible workplace provider Workspace, interior designers Trifle* were tasked with devising a local feel to the new location – drawing upon the history and culture from the immediate and wider vicinity.
Armed with ongoing research into how workspaces can and need to function for businesses and individuals, Trifle* used biophilia, industrial details and colour to cleverly define the different working spaces at Mirror Works – a vibrant addition to the Stratford area which has seen huge amounts of regenerative growth since the 90s, and more rapidly since the 2012 London Olympics.
On the ground floor, cool blues set the mood with rich wine tones creating comfortable lounge zones – accented by pops of yellow and green. Textural elements give depth to the scheme – from plush upholstery to acoustic panels – creating a tactile and homely experience. An impressive lighting sculpture and mirrored elements throughout the space pay homage to the site’s history as a former Victorian glassworks factory, which backs onto the canal with picturesque views of the nearby confluence. Design details include bespoke 100% recycled worktops and carefully curated artworks hanging throughout. Open plan terraces overlook the canal and city skyline, and concrete walls and terrazzo floors add to a modern feel.
The design of this new-age workspace ultimately encourages much-needed community and aims to actively entice teams and businesses together post-pandemic. A functional landscape for differing working needs has been created, from quiet to collaborative, plus comfortable areas for reading, relaxing and moments to switch off.
‘We’re delighted to open the doors to Mirror Works, the newest member of our Workspace family,’ comments Emma Burrows, Centre Manager at Mirror Works. ‘We’ve already seen fantastic demand for office space here, in what is now one of the most thriving parts of the capital. Mirror Works is truly a celebration of the amazing regenerative growth that the area has seen and we really look forward to welcoming some of London’s brightest businesses.’
