architecture and interiors practice jump studios has designed the first UK office for internet performance company, cloudflare. the scheme has transformed a former paper factory in london’s southwark area into a bright, efficient space, capable of accommodating a growing workforce. the flexible design can also be adapted to provide additional capacity for future expansion.

the refurbished 7,000 square foot office includes around 100 desks with large social areas. constructed out of OSB, jump studios has organized the headquarters around a ‘spine’ that not only maintains physical and visual connectivity, but also offers storage and shelving units for cloudflare to display tools, gadgets, books, and awards. this unit contains informal meeting spaces for employees to relax and hold impromptu conversations throughout the day.

a flexible, 40-seat auditorium includes a step seating area and a projection screen. two curtain rails spanning the width of the space allow the area to be broken up for varied uses. a larger eight-person board room is hidden behind the auditorium beneath the steps. larger work desks surround the central area and encourage collaborative working.

the design employs durable materials including concrete, metal, and plywood. in the kitchen, stained OSB and plywood tables are paired with vintage scandinavian furniture sourced by chase & sorensen. much of the remaining furniture is bespoke, including the custom-made desks, which have powder-coated metal legs, lacquered-plywood tops, accessible panels, and cable management.

rather than the standard method of having IT wires coming from beneath the desk, visible coils from above run the electric and data cords to workstations. a feature ‘graphic wall’ has been programmed to showcase live information from the internet using both LED and 2D graphics.
