The Client required a series of bookable areas to give this office space a hospitality feel. The reception needed to have the same light, hotel-like atmosphere. Confidentiality is important as the bank’s customers include many high net worth individuals and the meeting room suite was planned with this in mind.
A high quality finish within the interior was paramount, as the level of design had to match the high levels of investment the bank deals with. Each of the 18 meeting rooms have their own bespoke carpet design. The colour scheme is subtle using beige and grey tones. A 9 metre stone counter breakfast bar seating 40-50 people is popular with Staff. Materials used include travertine, bronze and special veneers, plus wall coverings such as polished plaster from Armourcoat. There are hand-finished bronze effects on the archways and portals to give a feeling of solidity. Flooring is a mix of vinyl and timber. The boardroom is set aside from the rest of the floorplate and has its own balcony.
