TabCorp, London

A variety of flexible space solutions, including Domino, Float and Solo.

TabCorp, an integrated gambling and entertainment company, and the global media company News Corp, set up a joint venture to break into the online gambling market in the United Kingdom.

To support this, the partnership needed a brand new workspace for 30 existing employees with plenty of space future expansion.

A key requirement of the brief given to fit out specialists Area was that the office – located in The Shard, London’s iconic supertall skyscraper – needed to be a standout working area that would attract and retain talent, provide options for flexible working and encourage collaboration across teams.

Creatif assisted Area in achieving this ambitious brief, installing a number of moving wall systems to deliver the flexible space and coworking areas.

A Domino moving wall, combined with a Solo solid panel system, was used to create flexible segregation inside the main meeting room. The Domino wall was finished in a unique combination of yellow glass and black laminate panels, and came with integrated pass-doors and black powder-coated frames.

This meant the Domino had the appearance of a fixed wall, yet provided users with the ability to open and close the meeting rooms from the central office area.

Around the central town hall space, there was a need for a sliding panel system that provided a surface to write on, and Float – our agile moving panel system – was the obvious sytem of choice.

A black head track was suspended below the ceiling (designed as a feature) to support the white, writeable sliding glass panels. Stoppers were also fitted to the panels to enable them to be fixed at any point around the town hall space.

When speaking about this 7,000 sq ft project, Area said: “With no requirement for client-facing facilities, Tabcorp’s new workspace has been exclusively designed for their staff.

“Upon entering the space, employees are welcomed into a central collaboration area and tea point. “This has been designed to encourage and aid communication and provides a number of working opportunities. Additionally, all fixed desks have been located along the window perimeter to ensure every employee has a great view of the City of London.

“This project is an example of efficiently utilising the available space. The floorplate space planning is designed to maximise flexibility using moveable walls, screens and a flexible furniture solution. All have been installed to ensure the space can be used for informal catch-ups, town hall meetings, as well as eating and entertainment space.”
