Modus Workspace as Design and Build

What makes an office ‘cool’?

It's about so much more than just looking good. The modern office needs to inspire, to motivate, and to captivate. This is exactly what Modus and Alpha FX set out to do. The moment you step inside Alpha FX in the iconic London Brunel Building, you can be sure of one thing. You enter a dramatic, impactful work environment that leaves an impression.

 

Design firm Modus Workspace created an energetic space, harnessed in beautiful interior design that makes use of the natural light levels and industrial finishes, while adding natural elements and finishes, rounding it all off with pieces of vibrant pop-art that make the space truly come alive. This design balances the industrial and the natural, utilising the harsh, exposed and angular nature of the concrete and steel to create a dramatic working environment, provocative and imposing at first glance but subtly softened and contrasted by natural elements and materials.

 

In every facet of the workspace, Alpha FX’s care about its people is tangible. you’ll find a large, open-plan workspace, with a lift lobby, gym, barbershop, tech room, meeting room, lounge, presentation room, tea-point, bar and dining area. Motivational elements fill the space, in the gym – a space that employees can use at any time – ‘Bring Your A Game’ adorns the floor-to-ceiling mirror in frosted letters, while in the on-site barbershop – where employees can receive a trim every month – the phrase ‘work hard but live well’ is emblazoned on the wall in neon letters, visible from the outside in the evening. Everywhere one looks in the Alpha FX office, the sense of energy and positive motivation is palpable. Alpha FX’s story is only just beginning, and with their new workspace completed, the future holds limitless possibilities.
