Work Hard, Play harder

Kings day 1.1.png

With a busy start to the year the team have really gone above and beyond! Late nights and early mornings, fuelled by gallons of coffee (and beer), the guys have produced some incredible work in record speed! Hard work doesn't go unrecognised. Awesome Team captain Maz treated us to a fun-filled weekend in Amsterdam for Kings Day! Our in-house Dutchman Gert kept us on track with a fab itinerary and we spent Kings Day bobbing up and down the canals braving the worst weather on record in over 10 years!

Done! #completedprojects

We’ve moved two happy clients into their new spaces so far this year! Clarion Housing moved into their new 400-person office in Croydon and we've already been back to see how they're settling in. We all agree (client & team 3e1) that our favourite part of the space is the huge arching canteen! Big shout-out to the guys at SAS ceilings for working so closely with contractors BEH to help deliver their brand new product. Clarion are the first to show it off!

The Complete Works are next up! The charity-funded school required a fun and engaging space to excite and inspire students. We really had to think smart to achieve this on a minimal budget. We sourced a range of different local artists and Frankie Strand really stood out. 3e1, client and kids think she did an outstanding job and really brought the whole entrance to life!

Both projects couldn’t be more diverse! We do love to mix things up! View our Projects pages

To Do #whatsinthepipeline

We're currently working on some great projects of various shapes and sizes: big, small, secret, quick, and some you won't even see for a couple of years yet! We don't want to give too much away but here's a taster:


We're thoroughly enjoying working with Lentus on their office in a fantastic new purpose-built factory. They are a young and exciting engineering company that have gone from strength to strength and have not only out-grown their current manufacturing space, but need an office fit for their growing team and somewhere to entertain some very high-profile clients! Keep your eye's peeled later this year to see what we've delivered.


Top Secret



We've designed a new showroom for an industry supplier which will be re-opening their doors in time for CDW! Keep an eye on Instagram and go and check it out!

Top Law Firm

We're helping shape a whole scheme from the inside out! We're currently working on an occupier strategy for the anchor tenant of a new development. We're excited to be on board so early and to be advising them on an ideal floor-plate.

Co-working Space

Sarea’s 1st Birthday!

Our wonderful, talented designer Sarea celebrated her first birthday with 3e1 last month! Usually she would have been whisked off to one of our dodgy local pubs and treated to a few too many glasses of wine. But in true Sarea fashion, she celebrated her birthday in style – topping up her tan on the beach in Thailand!

Have a look at her profile and the rest of the team on our Making Work Live Page

Mix Interiors Co-working Talk

Knowledge is key! We love an educational talk and a highlight so far this year has been this event from Mix Inspired - 'Co-working - Are we at the beginning, middle or the end'. The panel raised various points such as how many millennials don't expect to own anything these days and the new shift from ownership to access offering wider choice and better quality of life. From Zipcars to iPhone, people would rather do stuff than own stuff and our workplaces are following suit. Who wouldn't want a buzzing reception area with a live radio station, filled with celebs and sounds?! That's what you'll expect from Fora's new 'Pro-working' space!

#Stay Tuned

Capability statement - We've recently finished our new capability statement! We really wanted to do something different and produce a sharp document that wasn't a chore to read and really showed off our personality! Get in touch if you would like to check it out! 


New Website - Our new website is still on the drawing board but expect to see something really soon - we don't like to snooze on new projects here @3e1.
