"The entire team at Aster were an absolute delight to work with - from beginning to end. They meticulously scoped our project, working through multiple iterations to deliver a final design that aligned with both expectations and budget. They also deeply care for the client experience and this was consistently demonstrated throughout, whether that be with their frequent updates, ideas to improve the plan (whilst remaining within budget), or flexibility on timelines to help us internally. Aster are the standout leader in London, in what is a crowded and competitive market. Look no further, we could not recommend them highly enough!"

Project Overview

Stenn are a fast-growing FinTech business, based in The Bower, a stone’s throw from Old Street station in the city.

Stenn delivers invoice financing and factoring to companies across the globe, to date having funded $12 Billion USD. In their 2022 raise, it saw Stenn valued at $900m.

With such a fast growing, successful business, we worked closely with Stenn’s internal team, as it was important our design not only factored in their ambitious future growth plans, but also the final agreed office design needed to be enticing for existing and future talent in the industry. Fair to say workplace wellbeing and culture was very high on the agenda for Stenn.
Our design and delivery saw us working with leading furniture manufacturers, to deliver agile working setups throughout the entire space, combined with productive call booths, informal meeting booths, meeting pods and quiet spaces. Together with our internal build team creating partitioned solutions and decorative finishes to meet Stenn’s business function and aesthetic.

The end result is a very modern, enticing, considered workspace, with details and colourways meticulously designed, with valuable input from the Stenn Management and Branding Teams.

Carbon-consciousness was again on the agenda – we provided products and solutions from our supply chain that are particularly mindful of the environment.
We loved working on this project for a lovely group of people. Thank you to the Stenn team.
