Leaving the lift on the 19th floor of a high rise in Canary Wharf, you walk straight into the reception area we manufactured for this international shipping company. The very first things you see are our Solid surface reception desk sat right in front of our large display and storage unit. A bright blue fluted panel with their signage mounted on top takes your eye straight to the centre of the room, with crittall effect glass either side of the display, the natural light can flood in to keep the space bright and airy. As you come around the unit, the reverse side is used as a TV unit, this ties in well with the seating area position behind the reception desk. On either end of the seating we fitted displays inside wall cavities to show off realistic models of their ships. The back side of the displays are finished in a textured sheet metal to mimic that of some ship parts.
The next room we come to is a small service kitchen, finished in all white across two sides of the room, integrated appliances and instant hot taps were installed to complete.
Following along the corridor we arrive at the 'Library' a room in which we fitted a full run of desk worktops in oak with a red edge, supported by narrow black upright to create an almost invisible effect, with sections of the worktops separated by glass dividers in black metal frames.
As we walk into the very next two rooms, nearly identical in design, white units sit along three of the walls to create the horseshoe shaped desk space. Perfect for some standing work or collaborating with colleagues.
Our final part of this office floor was the main kitchen area, a large area, consisting of a media wall at one end, with our fluted oak panelling being used a feature under the TV and speakers.
Along one side of the room spans a laptop bar with a view of the Thames from 19 floors, as with the recurring theme across the floor oak and red are very present at all times.
The last piece of the floor is the tea point and island, both with solid surface worktops, the tea point finished in a grey for the tall units and wall units. With oak finishing the bottom layer and island to match.
