The brief was to house eighty trading style desks within a contemporary environment that reflected the ethos of this energetic and visionary business. The design concept revolved around the twisting Algomi logo design. The scheme is essentially black and white with a hint of the Algomi turquoise blue. The juxtaposition of hard and soft materials was extremely important due to the limited palette.
On entering the twelfth floor, visitors are greeted with a beautiful handcrafted Corian reception desk surrounded by Offect acoustic panels and a bespoke flowing ceiling. The reception adjoins a well-appointed business lounge with a plethora of work settings, to allow visitors work and relaxation space.
The Boardroom has a stunning fourteen person board table handcrafted in smoked oak with an inset glass panel and credenza to match. The workplace is open plan, enjoying the stunning views of the city, with black and white desks by Senator. In the heart of the floor is a break out space with a fourteen person stone breakfast bar, supported by a low level seating area and three large plasma screens reflecting the business that Algomi are in. The bar area itself is designed with great detail in mind, using Domus matt black tiles creating artwork in themselves.
Timescales were fast and furious! With only two weeks design and four weeks on site, working alongside the contractor’s Kingly, the project was executed to a high standard. Every detail thought through from the bespoke artwork panels to the impressive elongated breakfast bar.
In conjunction with Design Brokers from Denmark, furniture was specified again to reflect modernity, clean lines and classic design. Great attention to detail was applied by Resonate in specifying a range of fabrics and finishes that allowed a sense of luxury and style and brought the interior scheme to life.
