The brief was to create an up to date stylish office refurbishment for our client’s own office set in the heart of Mayfair, together with refurbishment works to the common areas and reception. Interior design was undertaken by our sister company WISH London who also sourced and procured all new furniture and fittings.
The current office and staircases were dark and tired looking and the offices were cluttered and storage starved. Essential to the brief was that we worked on a fast track basis to a set budget and minimise disruption to the staff.
Working closely with the client team from the start we created an open plan office, with designated zones for full height storage walls, printing and copying areas. We reduced the size of an underused comm’s room to create a walk in stationary cupboard. Three individual offices were created, with glazed partitions to maximise natural daylight and the open plan feel the client wanted. By simply installing new carpeting throughout, paint finish to the walls and new clean lined white state of the art desks and classic ergonomic chairs the transformation has been made from a dark uninviting office to a smart welcoming office that our client is now proud to receive people in. Splashes of colour were added through feature walls and desk screens to add those finishing touches.
Meeting rooms were also updated through simply replacing glass table tops with painted white glass to create a clean look, new carpeting and floor lamps. A much needed staff breakout room was also provided.
With a tight budget, works to the common areas included re-staining balustrades in a dark walnut to bring them up to date and new finishes and light fittings were installed.
Through working closely with the client and main contractor the project was successfully completed ahead of programme and on budget.
