Conversion into prestige office spaces.
The main floor is a large hall converted into open office spaces and cubicles. A large reception space is used for informal meetings. Ceiling recessed lighting is not always possible nor desired. Surface mounted cylindrical fittings are used on ceiling beams and on the walls, they echo the steel columns from the original building (mid 19th Century).
In the vault, converted in to a board meeting room, natural light comes from a large ceiling opening and is complemented by “invisible” downlights. Decorative elements are carefully highlighted from the back.
In all other rooms, light fittings have been carefully selected and placed to almost disappear in the architecture.
