Orms unveils new City Road office

  • Comment

Orms has published first images of its newly refurbished office off London’s City Road.

After 20 years at premises in Clerkenwell, the practice is moving to Derwent London’s 1 Oliver’s Yard in September.

It has taken a 6,500 sq ft studio on the fourth floor – of which 1,250 sq ft will be sublet – to house its 50-strong team, with capacity to expand to 65.

Orms has refurbished the space to create an entirely open studio with flexible walls to create private meeting rooms when required; cork-lined floors and linoleum desk tops.

The studio has been fitted with acoustic lined walls with curved aluminium facing, and perforated metal panels to the ceiling rafts. Along the City Road frontage a 25 metre-long outdoor terrace will provide a meeting and social space.

Director John McRae said the intention was to create a studio that serves both as ‘an architectural installation and dynamic and flexible space that supports our creativity’. 

The office move follows Orm’s rebranding exercise last year and coincides with its 30th anniversary.
