A modern workplace in the magnificent Adelphi Building

Situated in the iconic Adelphi building, Makuria Investment Management gave us a brief to create a workplace design that embraced the grandeur and prestige of the building and yet provide for the needs of the contemporary occupants.

With Art Deco inspired interiors and façade, classic columns, travertine marble and copper details the Adelphi building, situated between The Strand and River Thames demanded a workplace design with a superior level of distinction. The AIS design team drew inspiration from the Makuria brand and developed a design scheme that was sophisticated, elegant and warm.

As you enter the clients space you are met with an impressive suite of meeting rooms consisting of two boardrooms, complete with copper feature wallpaper, halo light pendants and sophisticated stainless steel meeting room chairs finished in soft, tan leather. The company branding features prominently in bespoke copper finish feature wall panelling, setting the scene for an impressive company workplace.

Each and every detail was considered, with brass inlay features incorporated into joinery elements and feature metallic backed, grasscloth wallpaper lining meeting room walls, reflecting light and adding additional layers of raw and earthy sophistication, in line with the Makuria brand.

“Our design solution placed great importance around creating something that was sympathetic to the unique architectural features of the Adelphi building and we relished the opportunity to create something with real sophistication for the Makuria team.” - Simon Hart, AIS Head of Design
