Woods Bagot is further strengthening its Workplace Interiors team in London by relocating Senior Associate Colin Devereaux, to the London studio. Colin originally joined Woods Bagot in 2008, and has previously worked in the practice’s Sydney and San Francisco offices.
Colin has 20 years of Workplace Interiors experience, working on some of Google’s international headquarters, including Moffett Place in California and offices in Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. His understanding of the UK property market comes from his involvement in some of the city’s most notable workplace schemes, including Cisco’s City of London office and Allen and Overy Headquarters.
Colin’s career at Woods Bagot started at the London studio, before moving to Sydney in 2009 and San Francisco in 2015. This global experience has enabled Colin to work on a wide range of projects, from boutique to large scale headquarter fit-outs along with multi-residential schemes, in the US, UK and Australia. In addition, Colin has been instrumental in leading environmentally-friendly schemes, delivering one of the first LEED v4 ID+C:CI certified projects outside of the US for Google Australia in Sydney.
Colin comments on his return to the London studio:
“It’s our common belief at Woods Bagot that buildings should be designed from the inside out and it is crucial workplace in London is designed around this ethos. Our London studio is leading the charge in Workplace Interiors and I am looking forward to re-joining the team, bringing with me my global learnings.”
Jonathan Clarke, Global Residential sector leader and Chair of the London Studio, said: “Colin’s global experience and most notably, understanding of leading technology giants’ will be of great benefit to the London Studio. It is crucial that as a practice we share our global talent and we’re thrilled to have Colin re-join the London team.”
