Google and YouTube, 6 Pancras Square
At the forefront of Google’s requirements was a building that would allow for total flexibility. This meant that every element of the office should be able to move and flex with team requirements, including the meeting rooms. Cundall was central to the design of the flatpack modular meeting rooms that unlocked the space. Initially engaged to undertake technical due diligence in line with Google’s design guides, we were then appointed as the building services engineers.
We were selected for our ability to work closely with the client and bring innovative and engaging design features into the project. These included a town hall, multi-function kitchen and restaurant areas, gym, YouTube studios and edit suites and data rooms as well as customised breakout meeting areas and collaborative workspaces to allow for the tailored working styles of the various occupants.
Kevin Hayes, Partner, commented, "It was our willingness to challenge the design brief that gave us a deeper understanding of Google’s requirements and allowed us to add value to the project. Working closely with Google, the design team and contractor allowed the design to evolve throughout the programme of works, resulting in an environment which captured all sustainability goals and health and wellbeing drivers identified at the outset."
The variety of different spaces offered multiple opportunities to design the lighting to meet users’ needs and integrate with the interior design.
