About this project

Workplace provider Regus is radically re-designing the layout of its flagship sites to create destination business hubs. Architects Barr Gazetas won the three-way pitch to create the first of these in Berkeley Square, London. The building has a strong presence on Bruton Street, with a double height space to encourage use of the first floor amenities. The unit was re-glazed to maximise views in from the street and encourage casual ‘drop in’ use. Colour changing LED lights around the window bays give a strong night-time presence. A kinetic mirror artwork was commissioned from art collective Random International to add movement and light in the atrium. The atrium space connects the ground floor business lounge with the first floor meeting rooms. Using cold cathode lighting the perimeter of the void glows and acts as a social hub. Corridors have gentle splays at junctions and midway points to reveal wall art, which functions as a subtle form of way marking. The refreshment area is the focus of the lounge, with a granite worktop, black glass and walnut finishes.
