Located in a mixed-development complex in Singapore’s central business district, the new joint office for BBC Studios and BBC Global News is a move from a fixed-desk setup towards a more agile workspace, with a series of settings that support work-style flexibility. Without a formal reception area, the walkway leading to the main office is a transitional space that allows visitors to engage with the personnel. Next to the minimalist signage wall is a vertical garden and oversized screens showcasing latest works of the studio.
TWO DISTINCT AREAS
At the end of the walkway, the path splits into two distinct areas. To the left, the pantry is the pulsing heart of the office, a fluid and rejuvenating space abuzz with different activities throughout the day. Flexible seating options regularly draw employees to not just work and have meals, but also meet up and socialise at other times. The versatile space combines easily with the meeting rooms, which open up fully to cater for townhall meetings and screening events of up to 100 people when social distancing rules do not apply.
