Co-Working @ Bermonds Locke occupies the ground floor of a 143-bedroom Apartment Hotel in Bermondsey, London.
Eschewing traditional expectations of co-working spaces, the space is designed as a slice of the Californian desert. A series of narrative tropes form a surreal, cinematic interior with a focus on wellbeing and eco-consciousness.
Taking a cue from the ad-hoc desert cabins of California's Joshua tree, humble construction site materials are repurposed to form generous workspaces while reducing the waste involved in retrofitting.
A curated planting design evokes the annual wildflower blooms of the Mojave Desert, using Biophilic principles to enhance the work environment.
