This year we completed our second studio fit-out for graphic facilitation company Scriberia. As with our first project with Scriberia, we developed the design in collaboration with their team through a series of design meetings as well as observation of how the employees use their space.
Scriberia’s new studio is a long and relatively narrow space occupying the ground and basement floors of a new building in King’s Cross. Being a very multi-faceted business, Scriberia has a variety of uses to be incorporated into the space: a hot desking space and flexible workshop space on the ground floor, then workspace, kitchen, and meeting room for the employees on the lower floor.
The resulting collection of bespoke furniture creates a series of functional spaces that are both connected and distinct, tied together by a colourful geometric floor pattern designed by Scriberia. The first floor includes an entryway with a window display shelving unit, bike racks, and a hardwood bench, leading into the hot-desking space. At the back end of the ground floor is the workshop and presentation space, which includes a built-in seating area and multifunctional bleacher units which double as storage for workshop supplies.
A library staircase provides a wealth of storage while visually connecting the two levels. Downstairs, the workspace for permanent employees consists of a series of large functional desks and storage units, accompanied by a kitchen space and long communal lunch table.
