Amazon – London, UK

Web giant Amazon’s trendy new HQ in Shoreditch brings together 4,000 members of staff spread over 15 floors. Known as Principal Place the site has the growing capacity for over 5,500 staff in total and has food and beverage facilities spread across 15 floors. At the request of Cushman & Wakefield, who were the Lead Consultant, Tricon were tasked with developing a foodservice strategy and designing the catering areas for the Amazon London campus.

Amazon wanted to provide their staff with a modern and spacious office and the catering facilities played a huge role in achieving this result. Working alongside the lead and interior architects, Tricon completed a full design for a central cafeteria, which that would provide both hot and cold food throughout the day as well as two barista-style coffee bars and hospitality supported meeting rooms. One of the initial key statements from Amazon was an aspiration to work with the local businesses/vendors by bringing them into the master-plan, as ‘pop-up areas when the building is full, to invigorate the offer which would be managed by the master caterer. This would serve also their wish to move away from a corporate ‘canteen’ environment and offer a more ‘street food’ style of offerings.

The new office building is uber modern with a futuristic/industrial style and showcases work by local artists throughout the building. The building itself provides light and airy open plan workspaces with adjustable sitting/standing desks for all employees, a large auditorium for employee events and two large outdoor spaces offering views over London. The development is one of many wonderful, modern office spaces to work in also boasting half an acre of public piazza and events space as well as retail, cafes and restaurants with al fresco dining.
