Carnaby Street Workspace
The brief from our client was to transform the tired interiors of an existing building and roof terrace that looks out over Carnaby Street in central London. This is one of a series of projects completed for Shaftebury PLC – we love working within this historic and dynamic context.
The building sits on the corner of two busy pedestrianised shopping streets and contains offices on floors 1-3. The top floor has a pitched roof that opens out onto a private roof terrace.
Taking inspiration from the vibrant surrounding area, our design introduced bold new colour to the interior spaces by using a new sheet material which is through-colour. The contractors did a great job and we worked closely with them throughout. This included producing 1:1 mock-ups of the timber panelling.
Jess Hickley, Portfolio Manager, Carnaby and Soho: “We have been incredibly impressed with studioshaw, they are so enthusiastic about our portfolio and have taken the time to really get to know it and to understand what we need. Our first project with them looks amazing; the proof is how quickly we let the building following completion. It is fantastic to be able to differentiate our product in Carnaby, particularly when we have so many historic or listed buildings within our ownership.”
