Actis
London, United Kingdom

Following a self-funded management buyout, this private equity investment company needed smaller, yet more-efficient premises. Gensler assisted Actis with its building selection then designed a 29,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art space that provides the flexibility and technology needed for the workplace’s physical and aesthetic longevity. The open-plan environment is designed to encourage collaboration, a key strategic shift from the firm’s formerly compartmented work style. The building’s transparent steel-and-glass shell contrasts with natural colors and materials, reflecting the company’s contemporary approach, as well as its connection to investment markets in emerging countries.
