The team at Frost are delighted that Build Magazine have named us the Best Office Architecture & Interior Design Firm in London, and our design at the New Covent Garden Market Authority has won the Build Project Award for Best Commercial Design. See more about the winning project here.
Enabling works have now started on site at Mare Street Studios, our redevelopment of a business centre for Workspace Group in Hackney.
The low grade existing buildings at the rear of the site will be demolished and the retained main building refurbished to facilitate the delivery of high quality office spaces, co-working areas and a large café.

In 2017 the Crown Estate commissioned a competition for Architects to design the office of the future, utilising their building portfolio.
Our proposal for the competition was for a Distributed Office environment that allows businesses to retain a fixed, leased office space while offering shared resources, spaces and facilities available on-demand. With greater physical flexibility, fixed office spaces can be smaller than required in a traditional office setup. Businesses subscribed to the proposed co-working membership scheme will be able to offer their employees access to a large network of office spaces across the city. With greater flexibility workers will be able to work more locally and maintain a desired level of wellbeing.
Within each office hub, businesses will be offered a workBOX; a fixed unit to provide private space to complement the preferred operational model of each business. Each workBOX varies in size and provides traditional office space in one location or a network of private office spaces across the city, or simply a fixed storage space for businesses to spill out into larger shared working areas. The membership structure will provide co-working spaces, allowing start-ups to work alongside larger, more established companies and creating the possibility for networking and collaboration.
The growth of the Knowledge Economy and developments in technology are expected to be major factors in the next shift in office working practices and design. Our workBOX proposal provides a platform for the evolution of the workplace.

Our concept for reinvigorating the amenity of Signal House, a residential block in Southwark.
The existing car park will be converted to provide a new entrance for the flats, a small office unit, new mail/parcel room and landscaping that creates an ‘urban oasis’.

For our Christmas party this year the team kicked things off with homemade cocktails and secret santa in the office, before going bowling at Queens in Queensway. A nail biting affair ended in a tie between Sam and Dan. We followed this up with a fantastic dinner at No.65 & King, which we would highly recommend! Thanks for the staff at these venues for having us!
Frost are thrilled that our most recent Commercial project has been completed at New Covent Garden Market. We designed the fit out of the Food Exchange Building, providing office space for SME’s in the food industry. The team took a trip to check out the finished project, check out some images from our visit below.
