Gensler has been working closely with British Land to design the leading UK property developer's newest workspace concept, Storey Club. With everything from additional meeting rooms, private dining spaces and impressive event and workshops spaces, Storey Club provides a distraction-free shared workspace that enables Storey customers and others based at Paddington Central to work, network, dine, play, learn and create under one roof.
Gensler provided strategic consultation, project management, and interior design and architecture services, helping define how the spaces need to function to serve an ever-evolving workspace market. "Storey Club is a sophisticated and relaxing atmosphere in which to conduct business and entertain colleagues and clients alike. We've created different working environments from the urban retreat to the music room and a kitchen meeting room where people can simply drop-in, eat a meal or work without ever feeling like they're at work," commented Philippe Pare, Design Director at Gensler. "We're very proud of the work delivered by the workplace, consulting and branding teams here at Gensler, and we look forward to continuing our collaboration with Storey on future projects."
Nestled in the urban oasis that is Paddington Central, Storey Club has been designed to make the most of natural light. Huge windows connect the inside to the outside and the many biophilic touches, from the conservatory with its hanging garden to the feature wall in the urban retreat, create a space that is both relaxing and inspiring.
Members can spread their time across Storey Club's multiple areas, which include an all-day café and a swanky music room, numerous flexible meeting rooms with the latest technology, a beautifully designed kitchen area perfect for hosting events and socializing, and finally an urban retreat that oozes relaxed sophistication providing an ideal spot for drinks with clients and colleagues.
