Located adjacent to the heart of London’s west end shopping district parallel to Oxford Street. The existing building compromised of a empty concrete shell to the ground and basement levels. The upper floors were a mixture of Cat A and Cat B fit outs which needed significant modification or complete replacement.

The proposals were to create a executive boardroom level on the 5th upper most floor, providing the highest of quality to its finish and fittings. On the 4th floor there would be a series of waiting and meeting rooms along with a formal reception for high net worth individual clients facing the main street with the rear section of the building forming the banking representatives office area. The remaining upper floors are fitted out to a very high office specification with Knoll bench desking, Vitra chairs, bespoke tea-points, Bisley storage units, Modular lighting and bespoke joinery. The ground floor would provide the retail banking facility with its astonishing stone finished open plan high specification layout, dramatic lighting and wenge finished joinery providing a leading world-class banking destination. The basement level would contain the security vaults and safety deposit boxes along with a dramatic elongated approach corridor, reception and waiting facilities for high net worth individuals. The remaining basement area being utilised for back of house training and storage.
