Lyst’s new home in the spectacular Minster building is a striking reflection of their contemporary brand and unique approach to fashion e-commerce.
Now the largest global fashion search platform, they needed an office that they could grow into, that strongly represents the vibrant team and innovative business.
The client had already had a design pack created by Aros Architects, giving ThirdWay the challenge of detailing out an already-defined concept – a refined and contemporary industrial style.
The office has a unique floorplate as it circles a 7-storey, glass-roofed atrium in the centre of the Minster building so the flow of traffic, light and sound were all carefully considered when space-planning and specifying the finishes & furnishings.
The final arrangement of working space allows different teams to enjoy their own small-team environments, yet easily interact with the extended team members within the space.
Collaborative areas were also factored into the design complete with moveable hot-desking and modular power & USB charge connections for ultimate flexibility.
A primary breakout area with a large bleacher is designed to host team meetings or to be breakout space for employees to enjoy a coffee or game of ping pong. A coloured glass dividing wall provides optional privacy without disrupting the natural flow of light.
A generous teapoint in the same space acts as a coffee station, a kitchen and an after-hours bar so this large breakout space can be fully utilized for social events too.
The ‘garden walk’ offers quiet breakout space is a key feature which encircles the atrium and is furnished with planting, shelving, comfortable seating and a metal railing effect - a nod to the client’s previous office on Hoxton Square.
The deep blue, Lyst’s primary brand colour, is a common thread through all spaces though a tertiary palette of blues creates further cohesion, and bold pink and apricot contrasts bring a sense of fun and vibrancy.
Key features: branded client-facing area, unique working areas for teams, ‘Lyst’ colour palette, unique furnishings, multi-functional breakout space.
