The first stage in our process was to gain an in-depth understanding of the requirements of the new HQ. We ran engagement sessions with the senior leadership team to explore how the office space would be used, keeping a firm eye on the key objectives.
One of the biggest issues raised was whether the requirements could be met across just one floor rather than two given the considerable downsize. Via interviews with the team, workshop sessions and strategic modelling, we were able to demonstrate how and why one floor could effectively align with their aim to adopt a ‘one-team’ approach.
Our team were also able to bring learnings from creating Siemens’ new, vibrant Manchester office to the design for The Lantern. We proposed a similar, human-centred aesthetic incorporating a calming colour palette, natural materials and biophilic design principles.
I am so proud of my team at Siemens Mobility UK and our partner, TSK Group, for the delivery of our fantastic new headquarters at The Lantern. The building and the space we’ve created within it align with our key drivers, to give us a healthy, highly sustainable building with great connections for our people and our clients. The space is designed to enable greater collaboration and encourage innovation while empowering us to make yet another step towards our sustainability target of carbon neutrality by 2030.
Having completed more successful office redesigns for Siemens, our partnership with this world-leading multinational continues to grow. Our thorough understanding of Siemens’ forward-thinking workplace strategy enables us to create inspiring, intuitive and highly effective work environments.
