Havas Media HKX

European Headquarters for Global Media Company

Havas, one of the world’s leading global communications groups, chose to consolidate 1,700 employees across 15 London locations into one new 15,000m2 10 storey headquarters building, known as HKX, located in the heart of King’s Cross, London.

Project details

Havas Media Group is a global network of entertainment, media and communications agencies, that has recently opened its new ‘HKX’ village in Pancras Square, London to unite twenty-four of its UK operations in a stunning new European headquarters.

Fieldmans, one of Kingspan’s supply and install partners was selected to help create one of London’s most visually striking commercial interiors by combining the sleek, industrial finish of exposed steel encapsulated access floor panels with the elegance of an Attiro engineered timber floor.

Given the nature of a fast-moving office environment at Havas, the combination of 14,000m2 raised access floors and 3,000m2 of Attiro magnetic engineered timber allows for the easy reconfiguration of office layouts and furniture, as well as providing instant access to the underfloor void.

Four years in the making, the 15,000m2 space is one of 50 village office environments that Havas has built worldwide. Arranged across ten floors, the agency’s divisions now blend from one into another, with distinct foot-traffic flows, break-out spaces and hot desking to encourage collaboration between the 1,700 employees who use the facility.

With their new office, the Havas team have created an exceptional environment for their workforce to flourish, with a touch of beautiful Italian craftsmanship at their feet too.
