The Space Planning, Design, Project Management and Fitting Out of 4,000 sq ft of office space to create a new Headquarters in Knightsbridge for the firm that specialises in African oil research and exploration. The project incorporated a very high end reception area which led into a suite of executive offices and a boardroom which was designed to act as the Client journey.

A fully functional audio visual presentation and conferencing facility in the boardroom, which formed a key part of the design. The suite was designed to make maximum use of the view of Harrods.
