To be designed by UK architecture firm Grimshaw, the facility will feature an innovative interior design with up to a quarter of the space being adaptive. YNAP said the flexibility will match the evolving needs of the business which include creative and collaborative ways of working and seamless operations with its Bologna-based tech team and other parts of the global business.

The technology hub will accommodate a planned 20% increase YNAP’s global technology team, which will be made up of 1000 employees equally spread across the UK and Italy. YNAP said the hub will nurture a mobile-centric culture to allow engineers to create best-in-class technology solutions, and accelerate the group’s R&D and release of the next wave of developments.

Federico Marchetti, YNAP chief executive, said: “We are capitalizing on the growth of our global footprint by bringing together our London technology teams in a new technology hub. We believe our technology teams will thrive in a cutting-edge environment that reflects our values and vision for the future of online luxury retail. Sir Nicholas Grimshaw and his team are brilliantly translating our culture and requirements into a workspace which will be the pride of the group.”
