Clean, crisp and modest, Octopus Investments’ HQ is somewhere you can hang out and get business done. It’s perfectly eclectic but not fussy, cluttered or gimmicky.

'With PENSON’s help we’ve used the space to create a modern and progressive working environment that embraces our values as a company determined to make a difference to our customers, the businesses we work with and the markets we enter.'

To ease communication and to promote flexible working we designed a number of lounges, informal meeting areas and coffee bars, with a Pick‘N’Mix stand at the heart of the client hub. Clients and partners can meet for a quick chat over a cup of tea or grab a few fizzy cola bottles to get themselves through the last hour of the day.

As a workspace that thrives on welcoming clients in, Octopus needed a lively, flexible and entertaining workplace interior design that would drive socialising and financial collaboration. Wanting their clients to pop in if passing by, the HQ is very much a home from home for everyone. Reception is complete with one mysterious creature in particular – an octopus.
