Nous 4M invites you to design a professional office space for 20 independent architects and designers in Southwark, one of London’s newest areas, directly behind the Tate Modern. The multidisciplinary space will allow people from design related backgrounds to give feedback to one another, share ideas, and enhance creativity between industries.
The design approach should take these characteristics into consideration and present possibilities for the space to change, merge, submerge, morph, transform while maintaining the core characteristics of the innovative environment. Integrating new technology into the office space and the way we work, and ideas not included in the brief are also welcome.
Nous 4M has been created as a resource for architects, designers, and creatives. We would like to make things easier, more accessible, and more fun. Let us know what you need, and we will do our best to help. Our 6000 sq ft fabrication space with a 5 axis and 3 axis milling machine will be up and running in September, and our professional shared office space will be available at the end of June to offer your up and coming firm all the resources of a larger office (materials library, conference room, hard ware and software workshops, and engineering advice). We hope to work with you soon!
