London is the most relevant location for the location of products and services offered to the luxury market. It came as no surprise therefore that for this office project, the most important aspect was the location. Situated in Kensington and in a building befitting of the dealings to take place inside, is an office offering high quality products and services.
Formerly a two bedroom flat, Claydon Reeves has transformed the split-floor building into a fluid space that is used for the promotion of luxury products on the upper level and as practical working office on the lower level.
The top level has been finished to a high standard. Softly textured concrete wall panels guide the eye around the room as you enter the building and walk up a few steps. The matt wall is contrasted by a high lacquered cupboard that features subtle grooves in the doors that visually extend the line spacing of the concrete panels. This station, containing samples and materials, is used as part of a presentation for clients and is directly in front of a glass and stainless steel boardroom table.
This floor also contains a kitchen that can be separated from the rest of the open plan room when needed thanks to a sliding back-lit glass panel. To enhance the visual impact of the space and the product models within it, a carefully considered lighting design has been executed to ensure the top floor is perfectly lit for any and all occasions.
The lower level is reserved for private conference calling in a second boardroom, while the remaining spaces are used for office operations and include a handful of work stations. The finish on this level is more subdued and in line with a working environment with carefully considered mains outlets, cable and network access.
