M Moser Associates as Architects

Leading global real-time game engine, Unity, is behind half of the world’s computer games. In gaming - experience is everything. Unity wanted to create a flexible, community-driven hub for its global sales teams across Europe to showcase its products and solutions in a digitally immersive, virtual reality (VR) environment.

 

A place to bring together partners, clients and industry professionals, the office takes visitors on a brand journey that starts and ends with technology. A digital concierge greets entrants and a nod to the 900-year-old game, dominos, forms a bespoke artwork that welcomes them to “The home of Unity”.

 

This residential look-and-feel continues into an expansive lounge where the M Moser team relocated product demonstration from an isolated room to become the visual centrepiece. Placing the function of the space at its heart normalises the virtual-reality experience and makes it a social activity.

 

Inspired by the mixed-use development at Valentine Place, the aesthetic concept is “Unity’s flat in London”. M Moser created an environment that feels inclusive and communal, embracing the flexibility of the home to cater to different tasks at different times of the day. The heart of the space - a virtual reality bar and lounge - adjoins with several meeting spaces. Clear separation between the front of house and the open-plan environment was another consideration in the planning solution.

 

Encouraging new ways of working, visitors can now enjoy Unity’s 3D Virtual Experience in a visible, comfortable setting. M Moser considered the security of the company’s sensitive products by incorporating crosshatch glass as a design feature for visual privacy and soft curtains over clear glass.

 

We selected the materials and design solutions carefully; sourcing ethically made and recycled products wherever possible:

 

  • 100% of the light installations are LED.
  • The concrete used for the reception desk incorporates recycled materials (that would otherwise end up in landfill).
  • Carpet tiles are made from 14.4% recycled content, cradle-to-cradle certified and rated “A” under BREEAM Certification.
  • Recycled leather backing has been used for the acoustic walls of the meeting rooms.

 

“This project was special because it marked our fourth collaboration with M Moser. We had a blast and the final product speaks for itself.

 

‘The home of Unity’ is small, yet packed with character and soul. The attention to detail, the imagination, the creativity, and then of course the execution and build-out is second to none.

 

M Moser has built for Unity an authentic space, one which perfectly reflects our values and unique culture.”
