St James's Street
Office Interior, Central London
Project Date: 2014 -2015
Client: Capital & City Properties
Location: 66 St James's Street, St James's, London
In the heart of London's West End we have substantially upgraded this six storey building, providing cutting edge flexible office accommodation and a striking new entrance sequence. Drawing inspiration from the unique exterior of the Rodney Gordon 1980's rocket-like building, 'Patalab’s design picks up the futurist-like qualities and transforms the common parts into an enticing spatial arrangement, using mirrors, lighting and reflective finishes. A bespoke built-in seating area on the ground floor responses to the prestigious location and forms a welcoming feature in the entrance lobby.
In the office areas, service ducting and ceiling detailing have been changed throughout. Combined with the renewal of the lighting, this physically and visually increases the floor height, whilst providing a well lit and tempered prime office space.
The refurbishment works have been carried out in an extremely tight timeframe whilst the upper floors of the building remained in full occupation. This was made possible by a well-coordinated design and close liaison between all stakeholders.
