Luxury Fashion Retailer Builds New Tech Hub In White City
Yoox Net-A-Porter, the online luxury retailer, is opening a new office at White City Place in West London, consolidating all its UK tech teams to one location. The 70k SF facility, which is set to open in 2017, will bring together the company’s engineers to create best-in-class technology solutions particularly around mobile innovation.
YNAP selected British architecture firm Grimshaw to create a stylish and flexible work environment that features a quarter of the office as adaptive space. The flexibility afforded by the space will be more responsive to the changing needs of the business, with a focus on allowing creative and collaborative ways of working with the Bolonga-based tech team and other parts of the business spread all over the globe.
Yoox Net-A-Porter’s new tech hub will accommodate the planned 20% increase in its global technology team, made up of 1,000 employees spread across the UK and Italy.
