    A design for life

    --- By ---

    Following my recent blog ‘Better by design’, in which I highlight the strategic importance of interior office design solutions for corporates, I thought it would be interesting to illustrate with a close to home example, … JLL’s own new interior fit-out at 30 Warwick Street, London completed earlier this year.

    Better by design

    --- By ---

    A firm favourite of mine, The Great Interior Design Challenge is back on the BBC. I enjoy watching the ‘wannabe’ interior designers attempt to satisfy high expectations of both homeowners and judges, whilst working to a tight budget. The end results are, in the main, pleasing and a definite improvement on the original décor and […]

    The evolutionary path of the workplace

    --- By ---

    Thanks to Twitter I recently discovered a gem: footage from 1964 of Arthur C Clarke predicting the virtualisation of work and the rise of remote working.  Clarke envisaged instant communication being possible between anyone anywhere on the planet. Remote working would replace the fixed workplace.

    2014: A time of action for occupiers?

    --- By ---

    Moved into new home in October (after many months waiting in a housing chain..).  Enjoying doing it up and unleashing my ideas on interior design. There is only one thing that obviously lets it down now in my opinion – the kitchen (which only loosely meets the definition of the word).  Obviously for me as […]

    What’s in a generalization?

    --- By ---

    Those architects of BritPop, Blur, once recorded an album entitled ‘Modern Life is Rubbish’. It is not a sentiment I support. In fact when it comes to modern living and working my glass is most certainly three quarters full. To me technology, so often criticised as taking society to the abyss, has an empowering quality.

    M&A bonanza in 2014?

    --- By ---

    Towards the end of 2013 we released a short paper: The return of M&A: Property Implications highlighting our belief that foundations are in place for an upturn in M&A activity in the year ahead.
