ICO wanted their international HQ to feel premium, homely and
inviting. Previously a closed-plan and corporate office space, we
were tasked with creating light and sociable space, to create a
collaborative culture, and using environmentally friendly
materials, to reflect their ethos and core values.
The concept is based on the zen principles of a Japanese garden, with an organic but ordered feeling of calm, our planning creates a series of 'terraces' around the central, social heart of the space. The new space has hugely improved team connectivity, improved openness and sharing and helped to gel the teams together with the new improved environment.
