We create spaces that work

FG Conference June2022 153

Thinking outside
the box all the time.

We’re always looking to the future. Whether that’s the longevity of your new workspace, the sustainability of the materials we use, or the relationships we make along the way. Area is built on three themes that guide us in all we do.

We aim to be:


Innovators with Experience

Workspace design with a flexible, progressive approach. Experience twinned with insights into current trends, new ways of working, and technology help us look ahead and conceive future-proof solutions. We break the mould to solve real problems.
