Rooftop Office Spaces | The Modern Garden Company

This month we are looking at the potential with outdoor spaces. The Modern Garden Company has completed several roof top office projects recently and we wanted to take a look at how the office outdoor space is changing…

The conventional office is rapidly disappearing under a series of challenges from new working practices, mobile communications and a demand for work flexibility – it’s all part of a fundamental shift in the way that people are working, with roof tops becoming an integral part of office re-fits.

Specified by AHMM and Contrakt Limited, The Modern Garden Company worked to a very specific brief involving transporting a large order of tables and benches to the roof without disturbing office tenants.Farringdon-Terrace-1Bevis Marks Offices

Working with Helix Properties, The Modern Garden Company put together a suitable collection that would fit the specification for a new roof top break out/function area. Working directly with the facilities manager we understood their requirement that was to transform the buildings communal rooftop space, making it appealing to the companies renting office space in the building so that it could be used for events as well as day-to-day meetings.DSC04829Investment Offices, Mayfair

An award-winning project with Outdoor Rooms and Landscape Architect, James Aldridge, this was an opportunity to create a fabulous rooftop space, following a brief that was to create a terrace with different areas for meetings, while also providing a suitable space to entertain clients, as well as privacy from overlooking buildings.James-Alridge-Outdoor-Rooms webThe Modern Garden Company also supplied outdoor furniture – galvanised steel tables and benches – for the outdoor space at the Dyson HQ in Malmesbury.
