The workplace of the future

  • By Jonathan Banks

JLL’s new 38,000 sq ft offices at 20 Water Street is featured in the current issue of Mix Interiors Magazine and on a number of websites including Office Snapshots and Costar. I was commissioned to photograph the space for the design and build team, Tetris.

The Canary Wharf workplace is JLL’s first office specifically designed to embrace a new way of hybrid working. JLL wanted a collaborative, sustainable, inclusive, health-led, tech-smart, energy-efficient and flexible workplace (targeting WELL Platinum, SKA Gold, BREEAM Excellent). The user experience is at the centre of the design, promoting wellness through biophilia incorporated in spaces both inside and outside of the offices. The project had to be an exemplar for both JLL's people and clients, while meeting JLL's targets for their Net Zero Carbon 2025 milestone.

The workplace benefits from AI powered sensors to monitor occupancy and air quality, as well as smart lockers and ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi complementing JLL’s own intelligent workplace app.

Sustainable elements include worktops made from recycled post-industrial plastic and tabletops within the demise made from recycled suit textiles.

The office features a variety of meeting and hybrid rooms, breakout areas, cafe and kitchens, huddle spaces, demo and innovation zones, standing rooms, study libraries, acoustic meeting pods, plus garden lounges and balconies.

JLL has employed a forward-thinking and holistic approach to the design of their new offices, with innovation and employee wellbeing at its heart.

Mix Interiors is aimed at the UK architectural and design community. Each issue features the latest industry news, case studies of leading projects across workplace, hospitality and residential, interviews with key influencers from the world of A&D and property; reviews of the industry’s major events and exhibitions, and insightful articles written by expert contributors.

YAMAHA MUSIC LONDON ADVERTISING

  • By Jonathan Banks

Last year I took over Yamaha Music’s Flagship store in London for a day and a half advertising shoot, photographing a variety of instruments and music technology.

I worked with a set of portable studio lights, photography assistants, an art director, and the Yamaha team that helped source music stands and moved pianos whenever possible. There were a number of challenges throughout the day, but we were inspired by the space and the music in the store. 

Whether it's for the one who plays, the one who listens or the one who's looking forward to a career in music, Yamaha Music London has the “Come together” selection of instruments and music technology.

Care home workers

  • By Jonathan Banks

I have photographed in care homes and hospices across the country. I always come away feeling positive because of the incredible work of the carers. The emotional relationships they have with residents cannot be underestimated.

The government claims it put a protective ring around such homes from the start and that the majority are coronavirus free. Statistics seem to show differently. The number of deaths attributed to this time along with staff absence because of coronavirus, places a serious question on why there has not been more testing in the care sector? With more testing it would be possible to build a picture of how far and how quickly the virus is spreading, enabling the possibility of being able to prevent it from spreading so rapidly.

On Friday I will be attending the funeral of my uncle who contracted the Coronavirus whilst at a care home. Amongst the restricted number of guests will be his carer.

Every Thursday I am proud to support our key workers, dedicated carers, and staff across the NHS.
