Metropolitan Works|Metropolitan Works||||||||Met Works inserted skylights into the building’s pitched roof|Wide corridors feature breakout spaces styled on railway carriages|Sturdy: thick steel bulkheads are left exposed and painted white|May the force be with you: Light sabres hang in the stairwell|A grand porte-cochere shelters the entrance|The white walls and daylight contrast with the waxed darkwood floors|A meeting room with original door and shelving|The reception is reminiscent of old-fashioned railway waiting rooms||
