Elements

Thirdway as Designers

Elements are the pioneers and market leaders of Embedded Talent Consultancy. Their team spend much of their time working from their clients' offices, immersed in the culture and workspaces of cool tech organisations such as Spotify and Booking.com. For that reason, the CEO of Elements reasoned that the new Elements office had to be a place that felt like home; that employees loved to return to.

 

When they signed on a new office overlooking Camden Market, they set out to create a space where their team were inspired, productive and happy. It needed to be "grown up" yet still have a sense of fun, reflecting the vibrant and sociable culture of the workforce. The design needed to include various zones for different tasks and different personalities, and it had to have plenty of space for break outs and video calls, as well as regular company-wide celebrations.

 

The project timeline was incredibly tight with just a few weeks to design and deliver the concept and then only seven weeks on site to convert the vision to a reality.

 

The designers worked closely with both the client and Tribe Furniture, finding synergy in attitudes towards culture, people and the modern workplace. The design of the space was very fluid and collaborative with ideas from all parties considered and included in the final version. The result is a grown-up, sophisticated style which encourages employees to feel empowered, professional and valued. It has a community feel, with a central kitchen used for team lunches, meetings, parties and day-to-day working, a coffee-point complete with professional barista, and a vegetable patch on one of the roof terraces.

 

The base colours are muted shades of black and grey, with pops of colour in the detail. It is full of life and vibrance - much like the company which inhabits it.

Key Features: Bespoke concrete worktop in kitchen/teapoint, large bleacher and breakout, front of house area for greetings and flexible working, booths and mini booths, multiple tech-enabled private meeting spaces, sun terrace, community vegetable patch.
