Two of our latest interiors, and part of a portfolio of projects we have delivered for The Office Group.
At Scott House, located at Waterloo Station, a Japanese inspired approach creates a calm and peaceful working environment set within one of London’s busiest stations.
A robust grid device has been used throughout the 30,138 sqf space to divide, frame and highlight areas, creating feature panelling and square glazing. Meeting rooms employ reeded glass at lower levels for privacy and to maximise light flow between spaces.
A neutral materials palette of white tinted ash and birch ply creates a sense of tranquillity, against which meeting rooms have distinctive characters with brighter colours carried through to furniture and curtains. An existing two-tone marble floor in the core stair was discovered and restored to its original state, and we added marble accents for light pendants and furniture. Scandanavian furniture includes Kvadrat textiles and the Co-Chair, designed by Menu & TOG. Specified in a light timber, it is both beautiful and practical, as it can be stacked.

At Orion House, seven floors of an existing Covent Garden office building have been refurbished to create offices which combine neutral, flexible spaces where tenants can stamp their own identity with communal and breakout spaces with added warmth and character.
The concept for the interiors takes its cue from the rich cultural heritage of the location. Break out spaces use a rich palette of colours and materials including timber, warm velvets and theatrical lighting. Bold block colour accents in pale blue, dusty pink and olive-green reference the genteel glamour of a Matcham style theatre, whilst exposed services and concrete areas ensure that the overall concept stays fresh and contemporary. Second floor meeting rooms available for hire by building tenants or external clients are inspired by cinemas and green rooms, dark and inviting, with acoustic panelling and atmospheric lighting.
A roof terrace on the second floor has been revived with new decking, bespoke joinery and new planting to create an attractive outdoor space for general use. Offices on the upper floors enjoy spectacular views afforded by the tallest building in Covent Garden.
