One of VERCO Office Furniture’s best received launches in recent years is the focus of a prestigious London installation through Advanced Interior Solutions.
DNA was selected by the High Wycombe-based interiors specialist as a core component in a fit-out of global advisory, restructuring and investment firm Gordon Brothers Europe’s new second floor open plan and cellular offices and boardroom in London West End’s prestigious Wigmore Street.
DNA offers a completely innovative solution for both collaborative and individual work with a clean, understated design proposition that makes storage the equal partner of desking.
Workstations can be free-standing, a free-address bench system, or combined with storage, letting the more open elements provide extra surfaces and screens, helping individual user areas be defined within the workstation naturally without any need for fabricating additional screens.
In addition to off-the-shelf elements from the DNA desking and storage range, VERCO supplied bespoke elements in white MFC together with executive desking in wood veneer stained to a Wenge finish.
The furniture contract included glass tables, while task and visitor seating requirements were met by models from VERCO’s Vibe and 2-Smart ranges.
Specialists in acquisitions and capital solutions, Gordon Brothers sought to move from their listed Georgian building to premises that would provide additional space and more efficient internal communication.
Advanced Interior Solutions advised on relocation to Wigmore Steet with accommodation across one floor, as opposed to the multi-floor configuration employed by Gordon Brothers at its existing premises.
The new building already benefited from a high quality Cat ‘A’ fit-out so the new office accommodation required some inspiring design to match this. Relocation also needed to coincide with a user rebranding to be a feature within the workplace interior design.
Gordon Brothers Europe expressed clear views on the style of furniture preferred and attention was paid to finer details such as cable management, and the use of corporate colours in flooring and wall coverings.
To maximise the efficiency of the space, executive offices were designed to double as small meeting rooms.
Gordon Brothers Europe CEO Alex Brick described the Advanced Interiors team project-managed by Laura Morgan as ‘exemplary’.
“They made the project as seamless as possible, from floor plans to office design, to furniture selection to project management and implementation,”
“We have had no end of compliments from our clients on our new offices and we feel we have a design that is versatile as it will be easy to adapt as our needs change in years to come, as well as meeting our needs now.”
