YourStudio has designed what it describes as “the ultimate social workspace” for social media agency We Are Social in the recently renovated Alphabeta building on London’s Finsbury Square.
The interiors practice designed the space to foster seven-year-old We Are Social’s community-oriented spirit. Split over two floors, the 2,500sq m office comprises a series of creative and social hubs that encourage work and play. Spaces are differentiated by a variety of bright colours – on the walls, floors and furniture – whether they are areas for meeting and discussion or spots for quiet, focused work.
A timber bookcase, visible from the reception, links the two floors and displays with an ever-changing selection of the agency’s work to both visitors and staff. Its brand colour – cherry red – recurs across the office, on the handrail of the staircase that connects the two floors, on the structural columns dotted across the space and on several items of furniture.
The wider building within which this office sits was designed by Studio RHE. Completed last year, it aimed to attract creative tenants from the media and technology industry, as well as companies in the financial sector. The offices it contains, including that of We Are Social, are visible from the building’s dramatic central atrium.
