Starworks PR, one of the best fashion PR companies in London approached NCPH to design & deliver their new London home. The list of required space ranged from a showroom area for collections, to meeting rooms, break-out space, private offices and a boardroom.
We received the brief at the beginning of April with a move in date of mid June that year. The first exercise for the project was to determine the programme of the space and where each department would be positioned.
The concept design stage is easily one of the most exciting stages of any creative project- conceptualising each space, whilst creating atmosphere and defining function. Materials, furniture, lighting and volume all come together to create idea’s that are tangible and reflective of the brief.
The design intent stage is where concept meets reality – problems are realised, challenged and then overcome to define a realistic use of space, material and FF&E. Working plans are then produced for contractors, manufacturers and craftsmen to bring the ideas to life.
Working alongside a project manager, contractors and on-site craftsmen, we managed the transition from design to delivery with regular site visits and communication with everyone involved. Close attention was paid when translating plans to each person involved. From the electrician to the joiner, the design intent package should be easily interpreted by everyone, ensuring no room for error.
Perhaps the most satisfying stage – completion. Client, contractor and staff (most importantly) were all extremely happy with the result and love their new home.
