As the way we work changes, this new work-play area meets family needs in London
Newfoundland, a prestigious new addition to the Capital’s skyline and a landmark building for Vertus, Canary Wharf Group’s (CWG) residential rental arm, has opened a new ‘kidult’ area. The multi-faceted work-play space has been designed for adults and children and is the first of its kind for Vertus and Canary Wharf.
The play space area of Newfoundland is situated within levels one and two of Newfoundland, the architectural and engineering masterpiece, and the tallest Build-to-Rent (BtR) scheme in the UK. Offering the ultimate space for hybrid working parents or those working full-time at home, the ‘kidult’ area has been developed for adults to work from home whilst watching their children play or to simply embrace the inner child at the end of a long day.
The new play area has been designed by Angel O’Donnell and features a rock-climbing wall with soft play surfaces, a slide and a TV zone, with an educational entertainment schedule, making it an ideal place for children to hang out.
The carefully designed workspaces allow for clear views of the play zones which feature the latest technology to ensure seamless videoconferencing for remote working, both indoor and outdoor. Guests can enjoy a selection of refreshments from the adjoining communal lounge areas while taking in the spectacular views of the river.
Vertus is setting a new standard with residential buildings offering an unmatched lifestyle experience attracting individuals, couples, and families in London.
Alastair Mullens, Managing Director of Vertus comments, “The opening of this dedicated area for hybrid or full time at home workers with children, demonstrates how we are keeping both this new way of life and families in mind. Newfoundland offers a truly unmatched rental lifestyle with smart layouts, sleek designs and top-end amenities.
“Tenants can enjoy a rock-climbing wall within the soft landscaped areas for adults and children alike to try, TV with a learning schedule within the residential building which is equipped with the highest levels of security.”
The roof above the kidult area also features a variety of different species of trees and plants as well as wildflowers that contribute to the overall wide biodiversity on the Canary Wharf estate
