Bellway | London
2020. Continuing our strong relationship with this FTSE 250 corporate, we were instructed to create a new regional HQ for the London & SE chairman.
A challenging timeline and an ever evolving design kept us focussed, but wow what a result, and one we are proud of especially considering
a design & build project within the prestigious One Canada Square adding to the complexity, and especially throughout the various Covid lockdowns/ tier systems.
The resulting executive suite is an enticing mix of cool corporate with fantastic southerly views across Reuters Plaza. With the advantage of plenty of natural light from the full height windows, the space has a light, airy and open feel, a clear and uncluttered persona.
The slatted reception joinery allows a sneak preview of what's to come as you sweep through to front desk; the inviting informal breakout area and touchdown space adding to the palette of work environments provided in this space, made more intimate with the drop bulk-head ceiling detail.
Exceptional video conferencing tech integrated into the boardroom/ meeting rooms allow this HQ to be interconnected nationally with regional offices, ensuring a future-proof office space for the client.
The feedback the client has received on the space is phenomenal within the first week of being occupied, a sure sign the client- centred collaborative design efforts were spot-on.
This has been a challenging but highly rewarding project, working alongside an excellent Bellway management team , a helpful Landlord and working with our fantastic contractors.
Great collaborative efforts with Pure AV, Roundel Kitchens
