frog has designed for global brands such as Apple, Audi and L’Oréal. Following on from our long-standing relationship with Capgemini (first collaborating in 1997), we partnered with frog to deliver their 10,000 sq ft workspace in Victoria House. The transformed space, delivered in February 2022, enables hybrid working and empowers creative experts to do great work. It now encourages creativity, collaboration and innovation at the highest level, and provides a fantastic experience for employees and clients.
Due to the pandemic, we collaborated on the development of this project remotely. Effective communication became more important than ever. We evolved and refined the process over a three-month period, collaborating with the wider Capgemini Invent real estate team and internal departments. Working alongside champions and contributors, we determined the final direction before executive sign-off.
Naturally, as a team of designers, frog had a keen eye for detail and knew what they wanted. This process encouraged our team to push the boundaries of design, reaching above and beyond what were already high standards.
We aimed for a ‘resimercial’ feel, which means the office offers a homely, comforting atmosphere while still reflecting a cohesive company culture and brand. Features such as cushioned window ledges, sofas, planting, soft furnishing and bookshelves help frame a welcoming and relaxed environment.
The new holistic work environment leverages technology for employees to interact seamlessly, both digitally and physically. We implemented tools that facilitate hybrid working and global interactions, with drastically upgraded AV and Teams video conferencing enabled meeting rooms as well as a sharp increase in available power ports and charging stations.
The London hub has a completely different feel, reflecting frog’s new found culture.
Perhaps one of the most impressive areas is the re-awakened reception area. frog wanted to create inspiring client experiences, the ethos of the brand is reflected from the moment you walk into the building. The context of the space has changed, to showcase a company with fresh ideas. This is a true place of celebration.
The transformed office allows employees and clients to connect seamlessly, regardless of location. It’s a fun environment, with the tools and spaces needed for focused work, collaboration and socialisation. It supports employee wellbeing, enhances interaction, builds relationships and most importantly fuels creativity.
