Morgan Lovell worked with ThoughtWorks, a technology innovation consultancy to design and create an inviting, flexible and multifunctional workplace for their London office. The office design incorporates movable furniture as the teams are rotated on a project by project basis. The desks are mobile to facilitate different team sizes and an agile working environment where all staff members have a locker to store laptops and personal effects. The new office design has had a beneficial impact on productivity through providing the right tools and flexible working scenarios for ThoughtWorks staff to work efficiently and think disruptively in a collaborative way.
