Circle Housing, London
Circle Housings’ new office in Kings Cross consolidates staff from a number of smaller offices into a new Headquarters building. To mark the start of a new workplace philosophy for the company, a new agile working environment was created. The concept takes Circle Housing back to its roots as a supplier of affordable housing; the office design incorporates domestic like settings to differentiate working areas, creating a laid back, flexible and comfortable feel. A key feature in the space is ‘The Home’. This area acts as the main breakout space for the floor and is designed to provide an opportunity for Circle Housing staff to meet informally away from their desks. Soft seating areas and a dining table complement the modern tea point facilities, resulting in a relaxed and un-corporate atmosphere, designed to encourage a healthy and happy work force.
