Work complete on Nike’s office space in Soho revamp


Nike has carried out a complete reworking of one of their London offices.

The sports gear giant enlisted the help of consultancy firm Rosie Lee to totally revamp its office space in Soho.

The office is separated into a variety of different themed zones with different colour patterns, illustrations and text graphics depicting milestones in Nike’s history.

Rosie Lee designer, James Nelson, said: “They’d been in the space a little while, and we wanted to make it less monotonous and less like a standard office space.

“Nike’s got such an interesting visual history, so there’s so much opportunity to take it from being white, grey and dark blue to make it more exciting.”

Visitors to Nike’s reception area are now greeted by a mural featuring Nike trainers and other gear mingling with a range of London landmarks including St. Paul’s Cathedral and The Shard. The mural was designed by illustrator Chris Martin.

Visitors on the third floor are greeted by a wall illustration by Rob Flowers. It features the words ‘Welcome to London’ and is surrounded by typically English things including black taxi cabs, bowler hats, and skateboarding pigeons.

Nelson added: “The main objective was so that when employees walk in they feel proud and excited to work there, and inspired as well.”

Rosie Lee had previously worked with Nike on an interactive installation at Nike Town in London’s Oxford Street when the sportswear giant launched the new England kit. Work on the office revamp began in November last year.
