Leading global investment firm
Mount Street LLP previous accommodation was not offering the expansion potential required by the growing business. Staff within different departments of the business were working on separate floors, making cohesion and collaboration more difficult across the entire business.
Following an extensive property search – a fantastic new office space at 100 Wood Street was selected as the proposed new home for Mount Street. This Norman Foster designed building, offered everything that the business needed, a large open plan footprint, close to the existing office so travel routes for staff wouldn’t be impacted and fantastic views and access to natural light across the floorplate.
The design brief was to create a warm, welcoming environment with a nod to domestic softness that would be evident to all visitors and staff entering the space.
Mount Street as a business are going through a transformation of their own and moving forward were expecting greater client traffic into their offices. Our design team created a space which allowed for greater capacity and flexibility for hosting meetings – both internal and external. Instrumental to the new design, was a new front of house space for visitors, and separate zones for relaxation, collaboration, and breakout – facilitating Agile working for the staff.
