  • Oktra and The Workspace Consultants were tasked to design the innovative offices for growing semiconductor company, DisplayLink, located in Cambridge, England.

    DisplayLink were in need of a workspace able to support their new workforce as they continued to grow into the future. With the purchase of Unit 22 in the Cambridge Science Park, which was already refurbished to a Cat A standard, they approached The Workspace Consultants to design a fit out that served their needs and would help elevate their brand one step further.

    The Workspace Consultants came to Oktra to make their vision a reality. Together they constructed flexible grouped working areas mixed in with agile spaces; a tiered seating area and training space, all linked by a clear user journey; and incorporated an active design, catered dining area, appropriate lighting and ventilation solutions and allowed space for them to install their own customised audiovisual features.

    Together, Oktra and The Workspace Consultants created an innovative and sustainable office space, achieving a Ska Gold rating and a site waste recycling rate of 100%, as well as sourcing materials with low embodied carbon. With bicycle storage, shower facilities, and multiple public transport options servicing the commute between the city centre and the Science Park, this BREEAM-certified building, with its wellbeing and technologically-focused design, is a real example of an office built for the future.
