Marking the 40th building opened in the UK as part of The Office Group (TOG), United House is a new flexible workspace just a few minutes from Notting Hill Gate Station.
The 41,495 square foot building has been transformed by award-winning architects Universal Design Studio in collaboration with TOG’s own in-house design team.
A sleek, modern aesthetic meets rustic materials choices and an earthy colour palette to create a warm, welcoming space.
The design of United House has a focus on sustainability, visible in the responsibly sourced natural materials which define the aesthetic of the new space. The use of clay quarry tiles, timber finishes from ash and oak and naturally woven materials is hoped to create a timeless style, which will need renewing less often, adding to its sustainable credentials.
This space focuses on sustainability through sourcing of interior finishes.
Alongside private meeting rooms, flexible working spaces and a wellness studio for use by tenants, the site has been able to adapt to the demands of the post-COVID office. The site opens with an air filtration system in place, as well as integrating floor markers and revising furniture layouts for the short term.
Flexible working spaces will be adapted in the short term to meet the demands of the workforce returning to the office for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak.
“Looking ahead to work in a post-COVID world, we expect United House and other TOG spaces to garner more interest from large corporations looking to disseminate their teams across flex spaces,” explains Olly Olsen, co-founder and co-CEO at TOG. “Our model offers a robust answer to the post-pandemic demands for more space, greater flexibility and a chance to return to collaborative working – also providing people with more options in terms of how and when they want to work.”
Another 11 TOG sites are under development at present, due to open in the next 18 months.
