We’ve all been on eBay. It’s the Internet’s biggest shopping mall where you can buy almost anything. So, when eBay chose us to help them expand and re-fit their offices, it was like we’d won their biggest auction ever.

Becoming the highest bidder

eBay were after an office that really embodied the nature of the site. We translated this to be a dynamic, fast-paced office with a strong competitive edge. We brought out all the stops and latest design trends to create a modern and cutting-edge space that would help them keep at the forefront of online retail. A key element was using biophilia and nature throughout the space to help boost employee wellbeing.

Activity-based working spaces

You can find almost anything on eBay, and we wanted their office to provide the same feeling of discovery, but in an office environment. We situated different working environments throughout the space, enabling staff to always find a space that complemented their current task; from standing desks, to quiet corners and breakout spaces. Or, as you might have it, a foosball-inspired meeting room. This is just an example of the dynamic workspaces scattered throughout their office.

A silent auction

Since eBay's open plan office encompasses the top floors of a converted terrace, we provided additional spaces for staff to be able to work in quiet or take a phone call. These sound-proofed booths provide the perfect space away from the open plan areas for staff to take a call, or work in private.
