MarketAxess Headquarters in London, UK by Spacesmith Architecture

Spacesmith recently completed the new 20,000 sf London headquarters for repeat client MarketAxess, an e-trading platform provider. The company recently acquired Xtraker, a financial systems software firm, and relocated in order to operate jointly under one roof.
Using the same workplace standards Spacesmith defined for MarketAxess during the build-out of their New York headquarters, our team designed an office for collaboration and open communication. An important aspect of the project was creating a space flexible enough to handle future growth and new business alignments.
Spacesmith emphasized the sophisticated and subtle palette of materials developed for the New York office. A custom wall painted in MarketAxess’ signature blue wraps around the building’s core. Light oak paneling frames the central trading floor and defines the surrounding spaces: the board-room, executive and client conference rooms, and the CEO’s office. Private offices, small gathering rooms and break-out spaces are located along the exterior perimeter. Etched glass walls both divide spaces and visually connect areas, allowing daylight to filter deep into the floor. Also included is a spacious employee cafeteria with a coffee bar and dining area.
