Travel Leaders UK iconic brands Protravel International and Tzell Travel Group, part of the Travel Leaders Group headquartered in New York, have just completed a phased refurbishment of their Covent Garden offices. Previously they occupied part of the 1st Floor and due to the company’s ongoing expansion in the UK, took on a new lease of the other half of the floorplate when it became available.
Kuda Kapuyanyika (AW designer), worked closely with Jason Oshiokpekhai (Travel Leaders UK, MD), to create a design for the complete floorplate to connect the two spaces seamlessly into one. Kuda says “it was important to bring in a lot of natural light, natural materials and bring the outside in”. For Jason it was key to “bring in a team who understood us and the business needs and who could work around us in a phased approach to deliver an amazing office space”.
The scheme focussed on an open and collaborative entrance with reception screened from adjacent meeting rooms by planting encapsulated within glazed partitioning. Visitors and staff alike can use the large kitchen and breakout space where they can eat, drink, chat, collaborate, focus or relax.
