Walls or no walls?

Walls or no walls?

We are big fans of open plan offices, so much so that most of our projects aim to break up walls and create flexible spaces without barriers. Crumbling those pesky cubicles lead to better communication, encourage collaboration and improve speed of work. It’s no surprise that more and more modern agencies are embracing this open-office...

We’re lucky enough to be based at an office in the heart of SE1; a thirty second walk from Tower Bridge and another thirty second walk to Potters Fields Park – a green little sunspot that looks out across the river Thames and some of the most famous landmarks in history. That’s not a bad...

Usually I’d agree, but just lately I’ve been thinking about the huge variety of flooring we pass over every single day without even...

The Best Buildings In London

As designers it’s our job to not only focus on our own creations, but also to keep an eye on what’s happening elsewhere in the world and in our field. We need to stay current, we need to stay original, and we need to be inspired. One of the best ways to be inspired is...

PENSON: The Christmas Party 2013
