A striking graphic black and white marble floor immediately draws visitors off the lift and to the seating area of reception.
Switching floor material helped transition from reception to the house meeting rooms, and Studio L chose 100% biodegradable Marmoleum that is 72% renewable material. Also, not a company to waste perfectly good kit! Studio L salvaged all the furniture from a marketing suite that Alchemi was dismantling of a former development, and their client was throwing away. And to help save money and allow the natural light to pour into the hallway, Studio L designed oversized wood mullions to sit on top of glass panels on either side instead of using Crittall windows.
The design library took pride of place in the corner part of the office. Again, 80% of the materials, lighting and furniture were all rescued and upcycled by Studio L except the deceptively large, piece of bespoke wall joinery.
The main conference room could hold up to 30 persons and displayed Alchemi’s architectural models of past and current projects. The brass shelves held samples for their working projects and samples were swapped out to correlate with the relevant project meetings held.
