The brief was to create a wall that celebrated the the local community spirit. They wanted something that caught the eye and transformed an otherwise mundane wall space. We developed an illuminated shelf installation that shows off some of the local landmarks and heritage that makes horsey what it is today.
After spending plenty of time in the local area we went about creating illustrations of all the key buildings, shops & characteristics that make up the Hornsey area. We then went about printing the drawings on opal acrylic a material that allows for illumination. Our fantastic network of craftsmen offered brilliant results in the hardwood shelves with fully concealed electrics. Our onsite project manger then stepped into to oversee the electrical changes required for installation. The results ended in something truly unique that is very personal to the locals & our client.
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. 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.
