Date: Designed in 2017, completed in 2018.
The ground floor has been transformed to create luxurious meeting spaces (complete with bar) with décor that reflects the building’s heritage. Even the toilets have had the glamorous treatment with old Victorian washstands transformed to create sink units, with a rich, deep traditional colour palette used throughout.
This has been a fascinating project for Swain Architecture and has allowed us to venture into the interiors field, and see the whole building come together, working throughout with the client to advise on décor, lighting and furnishings for the whole project.
Digital PR agency Tank wanted its new office building’s environment to delight clients and its team in equal measure. A heritage enthusiast, Tank’s owner Trevor wanted Swain to assist him in restoring the Victorian building, whilst making it ‘work’ for his fast growing and dynamic agency.
The removal of the unattractive partitions to the first and second floors helped reinstate the original large, bright open plan spaces. These have created flexible studio spaces to allow for the expansion of the company, and also the easy transformation of the rooms into small event spaces.
