The challenge

Fast growth and an expanding team meant that Urban Exposure knew they had outgrown their space and were ready to find a new one. We were set the task of using sustainable materials and elements to create a multi-purpose space to suit the different teams and ever-changing nature of their business.  

The solution

By incorporating natural timber materials and biophilia we created a wellbeing focused space.  Every area was designed in such a way that it was completely interconnected to encourage team collaboration while maintaining quiet zones for those working individually.  

  • Quiet spaces
    Single person pods enabling team members to knuckle and focus away from the hustle and bustle
  • Feature fixtures
    Incorporating fittings with rounded edges to contrast the structured lines that feature throughout the design
  • Living wall
  • Usability was key
    Working effectively in the space and with others was enabled through open plan working areas and open storage solutions
