Solving Spaces &
Evolving Workplaces

We enhance the connection between people and place.

A large proportion of our work comes under the banner of 'workplace design' - but what does that mean? Most people associate this with office design, but that’s often not the case. What we actually do is work with our clients to solve the design challenges of the places and spaces they work, wherever that may be. It could be a 20-storey office block, or it could be a recording studio, a military base, a university building or an engineering workshop. Workplace design doesn’t always have to mean desks, chairs and overbooked meeting rooms.


In response to the current health crisis, from 17th March, we will not be attending meetings, site visits or presentations in person. However, please be assured we will continue to offer our usual mix of problem solving, creativity and enterprise from wherever we are to wherever you are. Look after yourselves.

  • Did you know... 

iDEA first trialled the notion of agile working in our own studio at the turn of the twentieth Century. Here, we can be seen having an impromptu breakout session, debating the pros and cons of prototype digital wayfinding systems. #truestory #workplacedesign #agileworking #pioneers #wayfinding
  • This time last week we were in London with @Meta4Dance shooting a film to document our 7 years of hard work at Old Admiralty Building. ⁠

It will definitely be worth watching so follow all of our socials and keep an eye out on our website for its release!⁠
