Interior design of the Grade A Listed Banking Hall and five floors of office accommodation to provide a bright and adaptable working environment suitable for the flexible working patterns adopted by our client.
In close consultation with the planning authorities and Historic Scotland, we designed of a series of oval meeting ‘pods’, allowing the five independent meeting spaces to sit comfortably between the existing columns within the Banking Hall.
The shape and careful detailing of these elements creates a crafted, almost sculptural, solution which complements rather than competes with the historical fabric. Working closely with a specialist lighting designer, these new installations are further enhanced by the integration of bespoke lighting fittings and backlighting of the alabaster feature walls.
The building was occupied in June 2008 and has been very well received. It is particularly pleasing to see how popular the glazed meeting pods in the banking hall are with both client and visitor.
