Save KAF_Havas Media_London_Interior11_Case Study

Havas Media Group is a global network of entertainment, media and communication agencies. Its modern office at London’s Pancras Square House, is a ‘vertical village’ of over 25 different agencies: a creative community bringing together over 1,700 people under one roof in a stunning new European headquarters.

The complex design includes 10 staircases, arranged in a way that no staircase connects more than two floors at one place. This unique design directs the flow of people through shared common areas, a dynamic 200-person auditorium and open-plan working areas.

Four years in the making, Havas adopted an environment where the agency’s division’s blend from one into another, with distinct foot-traffic flows, break-out spaces and hot desking to encourage collaboration.

Given the fast-moving office environment at Havas, the combination of 14,000m2 of raised access floors and 3,000m2 of Attiro magnetic engineered timber allows for the easy reconfiguration of office layouts and furniture as well as bringing the personality of the building to life. The sleek industrial finish of exposed steel, encapsulated access floor panels and the elegance of a Kingspan Attiro engineered timber floor has helped to create a visually striking office interior.

With their new office, the Havas team have created an exceptional environment for their workforce to flourish. The new scheme has won the regional British Council for Offices (BCO) “Best Fit Out of Workplace” Award 2018.
