New office boasts bar and barista

Colourful, fun-loving makeover for London technology company.

Currencycloud, a global payments platform and part of the FinTech organisation, recently looked to renovate its base and turned to CCWS Interiors to design and fit the interior. The brief put a premium on creative but flexible fixed-cost procurement that echoed the firm's  culture.

Overlooking Spitalfields Market in the East End of London the open-plan space is a hub of fast-paced, creative, tech-based work. The Currencycloud office refit needed to reflect the ethos and working style of its employees.

Headed up by CCWS Interiors’ David Keane and Amy Elliott, design concepts centred on the need to transform the open-plan office into an interactive and relaxed working environment that reflected the identity and structure of the organisation.

Long-bench seating, height-adjustable sit-stand desks and a variety of flexible working areas defined the areas, which included open non-bookable collaborative areas. At the centre of the project is a Bleacher-style presentation area, built from weather wood planks and in-built with power points, all facing a feature blackboard presentation wall.

This interactive working zone is flanked by a Barista style café, featuring oversized reclaimed tables, an eclectic mixture of seating styles and a sociable raised bar area. The leisure space continues on to lounge-style sofas, hanging hammock chairs, a video games area and the star of the show: an artificial grass-covered breakout and ‘pitch-n-putt’ area.
