Interior design specialist CCWS has created an inspiring new workspace for games designer Space Ape. The Soho office now boasts, amongst other facilities, a Lego room and ‘quiet pods’ for meetings.
 
Founded by design duo David Keane and Amy Elliott, CCWS aims to use design to redefine the way people work. The latest project, they say, challenged them to throw out the rulebook and defy the conventional office blueprint to provide gaming firm Space Ape with a ‘cool and contemporary refit that embraced the company’s playful personality’.

The final design featured masses of creative, non-assigned space: areas to collaborate and share ideas in, and personal one-to-one environments for focused discussions and introverted working. A mix of highly creative, versatile working spaces was introduced, from the casual, open-plan layout of the Brewer Street room with its comfy, modular seating system, to the personal working booths that command attention with bold, fabric-lined interiors.
 
The original steel and concrete structure was celebrated and stripped back to the bare bone, exposing industrial metalwork and raw surfaces paired with up-cycled furniture, bold pops of colour and smart flexi-work systems that ensure an engaging work environment on every level.

Stepping away from the traditional uninspiring, corporate boardroom concept, CCWS also created meeting areas like The Bridge that were designed to reflect the social nature and visionary approach of Space Ape’s brand identity.

The Apes now have the freedom to move around the office and define their own individual response to the space; whether choosing to sit in groups for one part of the day then moving to the ‘Quiet Pods’ designed for contemplative tasks, or to take five in the ‘Lego Room’ for some down time.
 
The six-month project is said to deliver ‘a space that celebrates the underlying culture of Space Ape and its tenacious team of Apes’. Achievement unlocked!
