  • Oktra with Incube had the opportunity to design the park-inspired offices for Bosch London Connectory, an innovation hub for the global technology and services company located in London, England.

    Bosch was looking to create a new innovation hub called the London Connectory. Oktra worked in tandem with project design consultants and smart office providers, Incube, to realise the aspirations and vision that they set out from the beginning of this new venture. Bosch wanted to create a journey for visitors within their new office, using a ‘city park’ look and feel as their inspiration.

    The unique design was configured through multiple workshops, with Incube detailing the artwork and technology specifications for the space. The building contained just one lift to transport all materials to the floor, which Oktra overcame by devising a structured plan and dividing the joinery into manageable sections.

    The space exhibits a fresh perspective of when industrial meets nature in the workplace. A fibre-optic ceiling installation reflects the sky at night and adds to the illusion that this is an office that is alive. The grey pathways, mimicking roads, contrast with the green elements of biophilia throughout.
