We are recruiting a Software Developer
Mergermarket’s relocation of their 350 staff from Pearson PLC was an opportunity for them to create an office to reflect their five brands and suit the ambitions of the growing financial media company. Central to the project brief was the need for the brands to retain their identities, without compromising the overall unity of a HQ environment, by designing a minimalist neutral space brought to life with highly rationalised yet playful graphics.
The focal point of the office is a continuous spine of shared alternative workpoints, linking the entrance with an external roof garden overlooking the river Thames. The generous, open café and social space provides both a relaxed meet and greet area for visitors and flexible space for company events. Exposed ceilings, feature lighting and timber floors create an informal, creative feel and private meeting spaces are accessed through an immersive blue portal.
Spacelab are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for Design Practice of the Year in the Mix Interiors magazine Mixology awards. The award celebrates the highest levels of quality, innovation and problem solving in architecture and design.
Spacelab’s entry highlighted our innovative evidence-based design strategy and our focus on client collaboration. Our unique understanding of the way an organisation operates in its space enables us to recommend solutions to a broad range of business problems, creating future proof designs that minimise costs and complement the brand culture. Projects featured in the entry included recent office fitouts for Virgin Money, VCCP, Spark 44 and our own working hub, The Lab.
The results will be announced on Thursday 25th June at the Mixology 15 Summer Ball in Old Billingsgate, London.
