Meet Capital.com, the high-growth FinTech firm helping to make the world’s financial markets accessible to all. Modus Workspace partnered with Capital.com to reimagine, design and build the ultimate, future facing, and technologically elaborate workspace located in the heart of St James’.
The refurbished headquarters occupy a prestigious location on the 2nd Floor, West Podium, The Broadway, a BREEAM Excellent rated development. Capital.com purposefully picked a building with excellent green credentials. Modus, a certified B Corporation, shared this objective taken by Capital.com to ensure an environmentally conscious outcome, reflected in the SKA Gold rating, the highest SKA accolade for a sustainable fit-out.
The arrival experience acts as the heart of the workspace, an impactful statement that creates an instant buzz and provides an intriguing glimpse of what lies beyond. A C shaped screen recessed into the ceiling wraps around a central pivot point, displaying media and a flickering light display to emulate live moving data. It is a seamless, flowing interaction with technology, that is reflected throughout the design of the working office areas.
Curved glass defines the space taking those visiting on an immersive journey that ignites the senses. The design takes advantage of the architecturally irregular angular nature of the floor plate, juxtaposing it with clean curves and reflective surfaces, creating a space that emulates connectivity and fluidity between technology and financial services.
The state-of-the-art metaverse room is an extraordinary yet fundamental feature of the office, creating visual intrigue due to its futuristic style that emulates the world within. An immersive gaming zone, inspired by the E-Gaming world takes centre stage with its dramatic contrast in design due to the black finish throughout, complimented by feature neon lighting.
Capital.com is not just a workspace, but an experience. A space that puts the employee first, making sure all needs are met, and provides ample reason why existing employees remain with the business, and why prospective employees look to join. It is one of a kind and will serve as an inspiring and dynamic space for analytical and creative minds to come together.
