East London Small Business Centre
In a slightly unique challenge for Open Workspace Design we were asked to work with MUF Architecture to create an exciting client facing small business support centre from a beautiful but unloved former Post Office in Whitechapel Road.
Budgets were tight and the challenge was to introduce new, modern office space into the vast former retail hall but to maintain a clear delineation between the old and the new. The colour scheme was inspired by the former post office palette.
Terrazzo floors were uncovered and restored, freestanding “pods” were created and joinery and fabrics were combined to create a welcoming space for business start-ups and small businesses.
Project Duration: 8 Weeks
Project Size: 3,380 sqft
