  • Oktra has designed the offices for a hedge fund located in London, England.

    This London-based hedge fund is a global fixed income firm located in London. When their lease came to an end they appointed Oktra to find and design their new London headquarters.

    Working closely with the company’s internal move team, Oktra’s designers held several brain storming workshops to conceptualize the final design concepts. Following their brand guidelines, and taking inspiration from the local area, British tailoring, and craftsmanship already present in the building, we created a sophisticated yet simplistic design. The brief was to successfully achieve their vision while maintaining the existing BREAM excellent level of standard.

    The final design transmissions over three floors. The second floor was converted into an open plan trading floor with meeting rooms. On the third floor Oktra designed a main reception area, with a five meter long patterned sprayed metal desk using overlaid cutting sheets to form a sculptural piece. On the sixth floor was built a complete catering kitchen.

    The London-based hedge fund is delighted with their new functional and flexible workplace.
