York House has been transformed, for employees and visitors alike, creating a space that demonstrates British Land’s ambition to create Places People Prefer. The newly-created reception showcases the very best of British Land, featuring an interactive digital presentation, enabling visitors to browse through details of new developments and the existing portfolio of assets.

“The office looks terrific and is receiving a lot of compliments from our staff. Well done to your team in achieving this.” Chris Morrish, GIC
The main feature of the project has been the way the design has enabled the company to interact and collaborate with one another on a day to day basis to reflect advances in work place psychology. Uniting the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors, we designed a central stairwell that opens up the three floors and creates a central meeting hub, flooding the floors with natural light.
Wellbeing is at the core of this move, with spaces designed to encourage the employee to leave their desk and walk around the office. This modern ‘smart working’ practice, supported by state of the art technology, provides staff with choice; choice of how to work, where to work and providing varied, flexible and multi-functional spaces with supporting state of the art technology.

The importance of sustainability within the design was integral. New materials and furniture have been predominately sourced within the United Kingdom and have been chosen based on their performance credentials as well as the responsible and sustainable way in which they have been manufactured, fabricated.
