Denham Capital, a US-based global private equity firm, wanted its new offices in London to reflect its success by achieving a stylish contemporary office design. A flexible workspace in which clients or staff could meet informally was their main priority. This project was the first phase of a five-year strategy and awarded after a tendering process involving 15 interior design firms.
Building challenges - Our team designed a versatile and elegant breakout area which could be used both by staff but also for client meetings. This innovative design provided the effective collaboration area which the client needed. The office was furnished with modern bespoke pieces supplied by our sister company, Sketch Studios.
"We were an extremely difficult client through the design phase, changing our minds a lot and retooling the space. It never fazed the Area team who completed each change to our satisfaction."

The building itself provided a number of challenges during this fit-out project. For instance, its own broader ongoing refurbishment meant materials or furniture could only be delivered via a single external fire-escape. Thankfully, our close relationship with the Denham Capital team ensured that these obstacles were overcome, not least due to careful planning and the project was finished on time.
