K2 Space completes workspace design projects

Office interiors company K2 Space has recently completed a number of high profile projects. These include office design and build work for Groupon and William Blair in the City and Intercept Pharmaceuticals in the new Kings Place development in King Cross.

Mark Phillips, managing director at K2 Space comments:

“We are delighted to have been involved in these exciting projects – office design is high on the agenda for many businesses – particularly for HR professionals. Our clients are asking us to help them deliver workplace solutions that attract talent and inspire their people.”

US pharmaceuticals company Intercept opened their first European office in London’s newest postcode N1C, taking 6,000 square feet at the popular Kings Place development, which has already attracted brands like Google and Havas.

Barry Lennon, global facilities and construction manager at Intercept, explains:

“K2 Space did a great job providing all the furniture for our new London office. They took our US standards and made them suitable for a local audience.”

A current trend is the quest for the right balance between formal and informal space. Phillips explains how this works in reality:

“We’re moving beyond a simple case of a ratio between open plan and private meeting space. Instead it is about creating a range of environments in the office where people feel comfortable. Sit-stand desks, acoustic booths and even indoor picnic tables are common ingredients in modern office design.”
