Thirdway as Designers

Leading independent investment management company, Albion Capital, wanted to drive a culture change within the business and required a new and inspiring workplace which would reflect the business" future aspirations. It was important for ThirdWay’s design team to focus on creating an elegant, contemporary space within their new Farringdon location which would also have a sophisticated design edge that portrayed their new branding.

 

Key parts of the brief was for the client to have a client-facing meeting suite attached to an impactful reception and a central breakout area which could also act as a coffee lounge, to encourage informal meetings and collaboration. The base build was well-executed and minimal, with clean concrete soffit and black track lighting. The design intent was to amplify these existing features with the use of concrete effect wall finishes and grey tones and the ashy, light timber finishes were there to bring an earthy warmth while deliberately being a stark departure from the traditional oak or walnut tones that are often associated with Financial Services.

 

The overall theme throughout the space focuses on clean lines with a cool Scandinavian material palette. The lighting was key in adding subtle hints of ‘cool’ via feature pendants and the use of LED strips in the joinery were included to highlight the clean lines. Lots of plants and greenery were also added to bring in warmth and life to the space. Lead Designer Sarah Bewers commented: “The client was amazing to work with throughout the process, every person was so engaged in the project and the impact they hoped it would have when they moved in. Collaborating with them in finessing the design detail was a pleasure. We all met for lunch recently and they’re truly amazed at how the location, the office layout and the design has had such an impact on how they work and even how people are dressing!”
