LDA Design is an independent consultancy, specialising in urban design, landscape architecture and planning, with 8 UK offices. LDA was very particular when choosing its fitout contractor (given their experience within the sector) to help relocate them to their new London HQ. We were therefore delighted that they chose to work with JT3. Our visions were aligned and to quote from their website “…by putting people first, we create better connected, healthier and happier places where lives can easily overlap.” The brief was detailed but manageable, notwithstanding the constraints of time, budget and Covid-19.
We worked closely with LDA’s internal project team throughout the fit-out process, holding multiple workshops to create the final design, using our own specialist interior designer. The brief was to create an agile working environment, with a simple yet elegant feel that embraced the company’s unique identity. To achieve this, our team used a light colour palette with white clean finishes throughout and a layout that was flexible enough to accommodate expansion and Covid-safe working.
LDA’s new workspace consists of a large open plan desk area, a team presentation space to encourage collaboration and communication, a board room and a soft seating area. The teapoint and breakout zone provides employees and guests with a comfortable space in which to work in casual teams and to socialise.
