Reclaiming a Modernist space for a media business.

Bauer Media Group (BMG) approached us to provide a workplace strategy and design that would allow them to bring two of their London offices together in one space – a Grade II listed building located in the heart of Camden, North London.


We’ve designed a diverse range of spaces to support an agile way of working which will help their people to work more effectively while also accommodating more people in the same building. The space has been designed to bring BMG’s two entities (H.Bauer and Bauer Media) together by introducing a new central staircase and social hub that will increase integration and connectivity across the business.


The design of the space was inspired by the building’s Modernist heritage, which we’ve restored by exposing many of the original features. We've used a neutral black and white palette to complement the era and act as a base for BMG's many brands to add their own colour. The look and feel is supported by exposed ceilings and the introduction of Modernist-inspired furniture and finishes.

"Spacelab supported us right through our project to create a modern and dynamic workplace, from concept to completion. They provided a detailed assessment of how our existing buildings were being used, advising on design throughout our ambitious refurbishment programme. The result is a workplace fit for a more agile way of working, which echoes the architectural heritage of the Grade II listed building. It’s great to see the spaces created being used in exactly the way we envisaged and being enjoyed by staff and visitors alike."
