If you’re examining consumer data for a living, you’ll quickly learn how humans work best. Taking this into account, Statista were looking to embrace Activity Based Working (ABW), so Kuda Kapuyanyika, Senior Designer, created a variety of zones for staff to work dependent on the task at hand. Using 3D photorealistic visualisations, Kuda demonstrated how a blank floorplate could maximise fluidity in the space, encouraging workers to roam and collaborate.
Key materials included reclaimed timber beams used to create a feature wall in the kitchen, drawing upon biophilic design – our innate need to be closer to nature. Natural light, unfinished wood and greenery creates a more relaxing and ambient workspace. Not only are there magnificent views to The Shard, there’s a playful part moss, part glass block feature wall greeting you as you exit the lifts onto the floor, using texture to create interest with the immediate surroundings. Whilst most of the office promotes a communal, coworking style, it was important that staff had separate spaces for privacy and an area for focus work.
