The unique premises in Central London retained memories of it’s industrial past with deep, exposed riveted beams, double height spaces throughout, concrete floors and exposed masonry walls with two storey windows facing the street. The proposals embraced these features, contrasting them with a carefully selected palette of materials including polished concrete and blackened steel that demonstrates the tactile finesse FBI bring to their interior design proposals.
Two mezzanine levels are suspended either side of the space housing design studios, meeting rooms and work spaces. Linked by a patinated steel gangway, they are pulled away from the perimeter walls and hover comfortably in the vast double height volume. Two staircases of the same material link each end of the gangway to the ground floor and frame a double height central display space.
