We make spaces work

in space

Hi, we're iDEA - workplace design specialists. 👋

People choose us when they have a hunch their workplace isn't working. We help identify and explain where change is needed, and what form it should take. 

Whether it's an office block, or a recording studio, a warehouse, a teaching space, a hospital or an engineering workshop; we've spent the last 30 years perfecting the art of  solving space.  

How we do it

From BBC to RAF we've planned, penned and perfected some of the UK's best workplace interiors 

Our expertise in visual communication means we've got the knack of making complex, simple (and beautiful)  

We've nurtured a talented team of developers who've created industry-leading applications 

Our vast combined knowledge of the workplace sector has proved us the go-to for estates briefing
