SHH completed a new London office interiors scheme for a private company in London's west end, working closely with client-side design director Zeljko Popovic.
The Manchester Square offices are the result of a brief to create a "high impact, 21st century office interior with a strong personality" with more in common with a gentlemen's club than a traditional office space.
The requisite air of subtlety and elegance in the scheme is reflected in the complete lack of external branding at the company's front door.
Although the property was made up of a classic (and Grade II-listed) Georgian townhouse with a former stables and garage mews building to the rear, the client was very open to a sense of contrast for the scheme, favouring a highly contemporary treatment.
The inherited interior - also previously an office - was not particularly grand, but any standout details were to be retained.
The building has five storeys and the rear mews has two storeys, with the upper ground mews floor corresponding to the ground floor of the main space.
