Fashioning inspiring spaces from within massive mid and late twentieth century corporate office buildings for the contemporary workplace sector is a demanding practice. Understanding the constant shifts in workplace trends, being ahead of the curve, visioning market leading space, working within the speculative market for non occupiers and so forth, presents unique challenges. Our work in this sector, continues for many of the leading property speculators and developers, and often on the borders and thresholds between established markets. We are restless, inquisitive, explorative and tirelessly devoted to helping our clients realise value and enabling existing building stock to grown into new versions of themselves. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Emerging proposals for a significant workplace occupying a full city block, South London. The architectural language is intentionally heavy, adopting an expression of massive spans of architectural stone at each slab edge, articulated by a broad grid of thick brick piers, supporting deep set horizontal windows. The entrance is conceived as a grand lobby, accessed via a 40m long colonnade. Upper stories are articulated by a series of roof terraces and gardens. ______________________ One trend is that the use mix is richer and no longer about adding shops at ground floor level, or residential apartments above. Instead, the mix might include a cinema or music venue, extending the building’s operational hours, bringing in new and more diverse constituencies, and contributing to the life of the city.  The erosion of the traditional security barrier makes workplaces a more generous part of the urban fabric adding experience rather than withdrawing it. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

The entrance is conceived as a grand lobby, accessed via a 40m long colonnade. Upper stories are articulated by a series of roof terraces and gardens. ______________________ Floor depths are minimised so users are always within reasonable distance of a window, and ceiling heights are maximised to give space and volume. Both strategies improve worker well-being, as do touches such as openable windows, which give users a sense of ownership, a feeling that they are in control of the space rather than it controlling them. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

The entrance is conceived as a grand lobby, accessed via a 40m long colonnade. Upper stories are articulated by a series of roof terraces and gardens. ______________________ We are continually inspired by the Victorian industrialists and their workplaces. The warehouse taxonomy of high ceilings, good light, robust detailing and inherent flexibility are long life and loose fit. Our office buildings also reflect a more fluid idea of work. As working lifestyles have flexed to take advantage of emerging technologies, and concerns about work-life balance have increased, places of work become places of mixed use. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

The best workplaces are physically embedded in their context, embodying the past whilst adding a new layer of history. They represent an identity both for users and passers by. They are relevant and generous, offering more uses other than work. They are mini-cities, offering interesting journeys, places of respite and chance encounter. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

So how can we design places for work which really are places, full of generosity and character? www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Facade study for sheltered accommodation scheme arranged around a courtyard. An outer skin of corrugated cladding wraps an inner core of fletton brickwork, the industry work horse. The materiality is intentionally raw and reductivist in nature, with a focus on executing detail and workmanship through an economy of means. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Hand cut and coloured card study models for a major city block/mixed use workplace, London. The emerging scheme is a dense cluster of heavily gridded volumes which step in tune to extreme variations in contextual constraints. The project features a free flowing ground floor for business incubation, staggering decks, logias and terraces, a dramatic internal atrium and a coherent programme of complimentary uses. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Pigmented cast plaster study model for emergency family housing, London. The emerging scheme incorporates a shared internal court, articulated by balconies, decks and a pitched roof line. Units are assembled around a strategic vision in which repeated components facilitate variety and economy. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Trees, and the materials they produce, are intrinsically linked with space, time, and climate. The processes and conditions under which trees grow remain visible in the structural properties (strength, flexibility, density), colour, and grain of the timber. Growing vertically towards its primary energy source, the sun, and layering outwards at its trunk gives a directional quality in the timber that is visible in variation of tone and texture in its grain. In this way, especially when used in an urban setting, through human intervention we can help reveal these characteristics. In today’s often disconnected and sterile urban environments, this helps to emotionally reconnect us with nature and climate. As well its remarkable potential as a structurally performing material, through innovative pre-fabrication processes such as glulam and CLT and jointing methods, timber is a sensorially rich material. It looks, sounds, feels, and smells very different to concrete or steel. It is warm and welcoming to the touch, making it an especially emotionally rich material to use internally. In the Morris+Company model shop we test, learn, play with these qualities through a range of model making techniques - trying to find solutions to architectural questions that perform well both structurally and sensorially. For example using full scale timber samples in 1:1 prototypes for our Alfriston School project, or veneers and balsa for our Wildernesse Restaurant scheme. We also use substitute wood based materials such as paper and card to simulate and test many of the material properties of timber at a range of scales. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate

Our competition winning proposal ‘Hidden Homeless’ featured on @dezeen following @marcusfairs interview in @dezeen before Christmas of two homeless Londoners. The interviews are startling accounts of the plight faced daily for those facing Homelessness. ‘The latest figures show that 6,180 people are sleeping rough, in tents or on buses and trains in the capital. Across Britain 24,250 people face a homeless Christmas. Numbers in England have risen 120 per cent since 2012.’ The competition was organised by New Horizon Youth Centre and @johnmcaslanpartners with the office of the @mayorofldn. Coined ‘Stepping Stones’ our Vision is to provide an inclusive, viable and holistic site strategy that can support a managed and balanced community by providing homeless young residents (16-21yr olds) with a safe, supportive stepping-stone into long-term housing solutions (Housing First), whilst also catering for a transient community of young professionals (20-35yr olds). Each resident is treated with equal dignity sharing the same design principles. Publicly accessible Co_Working spaces and the Charity shop empower the residents, their shared home thus a destination for the local community and visitors alike. Our scheme aims to set a benchmark/exemplary standard, which could be replicated in other existing buildings, to address the real and pertinent housing pressures facing young people across London. Given the complex nature of homelessness, we interviewed a range of experts and stakeholders who work with homelessness in London at the pre-competition stage, including @crisis_uk , Bedu and residents of St Christopher’s Fellowship. www.morrisand.company ______________________ #morrisandcompany   #mocoarchitects #moco_voices #achangeofstate
