The Brief:

Create a dynamic, youthful reception to update this disused office building and reflect the emerging personality of this up-and-coming area

The Location:

A refurbished 1970s office block in Croydon, south east London

The Client:

Linton – a prime London commercial and residential property developer

GD&L Design:

In response to the request for dynamism we created a striking, urban reception space in the street level entrance lobby. Bold geometry on the walls, reception and bespoke rubber flooring combine with a limited colour palette to create a strong sense of identity and a real impact on arrival. There are multiple seating areas to provide informal breakout and meeting spaces and the extensive planting adds texture.
