Pan Macmillan, Clerkenwell
A new headquarters for the internationally respected publisher Pan Macmillan. Set over 6 floors and nearly 40,000 sq.ft, we have developed a design that leads the way in truly agile activity based working for over 240 staff
Building on our experience of developing new and innovative workplace environments over the past 15 years we were appointed by Pan Macmillan, working closely with Veldhoen + Company, to design their new headquarters in Clerkenwell.
Set over six floors and across nearly 40,000 sq.ft we have developed a design that leads the way in truly agile activity based working, responding specifically to the year long programme of staff engagement, research and workplace development prior to the design commencing.
In response we have created a diverse range of nine different workplace settings distributed across the building centred around the two principal anchor floors and third social floor containing the informal dinning area and largest of the terraces.
The introduction of three carefully located new stair ways creates visual links between the three largest floor plates, allowing shafts of light to pass through the building encouraging staff to circulate amongst the wide range of workplace settings
Alongside our role as architect, lead consultant and interior designer, which includes the design of 7 bespoke tables to achieve specific needs and combination of uses, we also curated the selection of artwork and design the graphic branding within the building from the reception through to individual stationary within each meeting or collaboration space.
