Barking Riverside: A sustainable, flexible and multi-use co-working space

Barking Riverside - The Wilds Ecology Centre Co-Working Space with Nimble folding tables

The Wilds Ecology Centre is a beautiful multi-purpose community, ecological and events space located at Barking Riverside, London.

The centre covers two floors, 9,000 square feet of space and has been architecturally developed using sustainable building techniques as part of the Barking Riverside multi-use regeneration project.

Rhino Interiors were selected and tasked to transform the centre into a post-covid multi-use space for the residents within the Barking Riverside area, Participatory City, University of East London (UEL) and ENVAC to use and enjoy.

Rhino Interiors, an office fit-out and refurbishment contractor specialists in bespoke, high-quality fit-out and interiors, proposed a multi-use space that included an entrance area with a café along with flexible and agile spaces elsewhere.

As the building is rated BREEAM excellent, Rhino Interiors adopted a sustainable approach by utilising and carefully selecting biophilic, flexible, recyclable, and sustainable furniture and materials to resonate with the ecological theme.

The Nimble folding table was chosen as one of their preferred tables as the project required large meeting tables that can be folded and easily manoeuvred to store away for which this product specifically catered.

The multi-functionality and flexibility of the Nimble folding table enabled Rhino Interiors to provide the Wilds Ecology centre with a multi-functional and agile space.
