Enhancing value for prospective tenants

Design & Space Planning

This project, implemented by the landlord sought to re-invigorate the buildings tired reception space and create a ‘plug and play’ space ready for immediate use and attractive to prospective tenants from any sector.

This project was fundamental for AIS in demonstrating the diversity and flexibility of our offering, delivering 3 different types of workspace in the one building, CAT A, CAT A Plus and CAT B refurbishment works to reception and common areas.

Our design intent was to transform the existing building, make the most out of the vacant floor plates to highlight the spectacular views of some of London’s most recognisable landmarks that the building has to offer and most crucially, bring the building into the future creating space that would appeal to a wide range of potential tenants.

The reception and common area refurbishments included new lighting, decorations, the introduction of feature timber panelling to bring warmth to the space and comfortable  modern seating, as well as the refreshment of the ground floor WC’s and lift lobbies.  Main office entrance doors were sprayed matt black and fitted with brass ironmongery, these simple touches coming together to create a completely new and modern feel to the space. Works also included the design and build of new bike storage in a secure compound within the loading bay making the building further more attractive to potential new tenants. 

With an already diverse range of clientele within the building from marketing through to insurance brokers, it was essential our design solution was agile enough to gain appreciate from a wide and varied audience. We achieved this by creating a warm and inviting reception area, utilising warm timbers and soft leathers to ensure visitors feel comfortable and relaxed upon entering and leaving the building.

Elsewhere we completed a new CAT A fit out to the 7th floor space, incorporating a greater ceiling margin detail to the external perimeter further enhancing external views, as well as inserting a new suspended metal ceiling and raised floor, allowing for a future occupier to move in straight away without needing to do any fit out works to make the space good.

Works to the ground floor included the creation of dynamic but flexible work space that can be easily amended to suit the needs of any client, but also fully operational and ready for a client to move in as is. We created meeting room space with re-configurable furniture that could be used as either meeting and board room spaces, or even set up as private offices depending on the needs of the final occupier.  The space is finished with a contemporary but refined palette of finishes, including timber flooring to add warmth and a light scheme to the tea point areas keeps the scheme fresh but neutral, allowing prospective tenants from any sector the ability to quickly personalise the space or simply move in as is.
