The concept of the contemporary office space is ever-expanding, especially in the post-COVID era where it can be expected that an overwhelming number of people will continue to work remotely—whether it is for safety or comfort reasons. The need for concrete spaces where workers can come together to collaborate, however, will not become entirely obsolete anytime soon. The need for such spaces to be flexible will likely increase.
In London, a local firm, dMFK Architects, worked on delivering a flexible contemporary office space. The project was commissioned by property developers Derwent London. The architects focused on developing a modern and chic interior, with an emphasis on collaborative work. In the past, this site—now accented by smoked oak joinery and a concrete staircase—was a 1960s medical laboratory.
