Coca-Cola UK Headquarters by MoreySmith
When it came time to redevelop Coca-Cola‘s headquarters across the pond in London, architect Linda Morey-Smith was faced with a dilemma to resolve the past while nodding to the future. The architect and her firm – Morey Smith – creatively reconciled both, working from the building’s 20th century Edwardian/industrial interiors to create a striking balance between old and new. The design incorporates visual elements like vintage machines, bold neon signage, nifty glass bottle lamps, and cheeky painted brick ads. Underneath these cues though, the workspace is spaciously divided, with large work desks and soft lighting to encourage group collaboration – the preferred work mode of many modern companies. Finished by a feature wall by design studio Acrylicize, enjoy a look at the recently-completed space above.
