Palms are a Brighton based property management business. This new office is part of 20 years in business celebration. Proud of their routes they wanted to create an office that brings the outside in & talks Brighton. With this in mind we went out & researched the area for weeks, taking in the colourful streets & seaside attractions. We spoke with local artists, videographers & locals to get to know what Brighton is all about. We went on to work with a well known local graffiti artist to create a huge wall memorial sprayed directly onto the concrete block wall which backs directly onto Brighton marina harbour. We commissioned a boat decker to create a one off floor that replicates that of the mariner walk ways right next door. We even worked with a local videographer to develop a bespoke video of the town using drone footage & glorious HD shots around town. The results blew the client away and brings people far & wide just to see the space.
The office interior company visited site & carried out several surveys to design & deliver this Cat B fit out. We went on to develop detailed technical drawings specifying a complete overhaul of the electrics & data, lighting, heating and cooling of the new office, followed by 2D space plans and sample boards. Our client was especially keen to collaborate on our 3D designs, with the digital aspect allowing key stakeholders to shape various iterations of the final look.
Little bit extra
Returning client, Robinson Michael & Jackson, came to MPL Interiors upon acquiring a new High Street premises
in Maidstone. As part of a successful franchise network, the aesthetic needed to uphold the property brand’s corporate identity, while being set apart from other offices in the group. A sleek, industrial design was requested
, pairing familiar elements with subtle colours and geographical markers. MPL was also asked to draw up plans to convert the upper floor for subletting purposes and to provide all new office furniture.
Our site survey found the MPL team in a former charity shop. Lots of old internal cladding and partition walls made determining the true structure of the premises challenging, therefore a complete strip out was necessary. The client was fond of some industrial-style rails that were from the site’s previous incarnation, and these were to influence some of the finishing touches.Detailed technical drawings were drawn up to facilitate a complete overhaul of the power, data, lighting, heating and cooling of the new office, followed by 2D space plans and mood boards.
