Box is a cloud-based content management service with offices worldwide. The client expected its new London pad to marry the magic of upmarket Mayfair premises with its unconventional ideas and workplace habits. Speed of delivery was crucial and Box wanted meet the design standard set by its San Francisco offices, where a striking reception showcases its technologies to visitors.
Bright meeting pods and an impressive industrial breakout area encourage collaboration in a colourful open-plan office interior. This is full of visually innovative ideas such as timber rafts and exposed service structures. Flexible workstations are broken up with accent furniture, write-on walls and audio-visual installations that enable staff to demonstrate products. Just as novel, the flexible office interior includes a canteen area for Box employees to enjoy catered lunches with banquet-style seating or to quickly hold larger team meetings as they wish. Everything is adaptable for the company’s growth.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Area Sq. Right from the initial pitch meeting, they understood Box’s quirky take on the workplace and brought us an office that perfectly reflects the nature of the Box product – the sharing of ideas and content.”Office Manager, Box.com
