The five-storey building accommodates twelve companies under the Engine umbrella. The challenge was to create a space that would appeal to a broad range of tastes while respecting and upholding the individual brand identities.
Clients can opt for multilateral or unilateral engagement with the different Engine companies, which meant for group working areas between companies as well as for each company individual requirements.
The communal areas reflect the Engine DNA while working floors were kept reasonably generic to allow for the personalisation of space. This idea is most clearly manifest in a series of perfectly formed, striking elements that run through the building as a kind of backbone that effectively link the ground floor to fifth.
