‘It’s serious but welcoming, which is quite unusual,’ is how Joshua Scott, associate director at dMFK architects, describes One Canada Square, The Office Group’s latest London space.
He’s proud to have realised this stunning co-working accommodation that sits across three floors of César Pelli’s iconic British skyscraper, and rightly so.
One Canada Square, the UK’s second tallest building, is a bold 50-storey display of corporate confidence. Features are so imposing that one of the biggest hurdles when rethinking the 80,000 square feet inside was finding cohesion with the rest of the building without sacrificing the human scale co-working design needs.
‘This was about trying to create something that sat comfortably within the environment. And that was quite challenging,’ says Scott.
