Denton Associates were selected for the design and build for newly established BennBridge’s London office in Jermyn Street.
Bennbridge is part of Australian based business ‘Bennelong Funds Management’ and houses local boutique fund management teams to distribute their funds across UK and European markets.
Achieving a clean, smart, understated design was integral to the brief from the outset and a key element to the scheme. The requirements were to accommodate four separate boutiques along with an open plan office for Bennelong staff, so ensuring good circulation around the space was essential. Locating these spaces with the best views and good lighting were an important factor. Other requirements included a shared tea point, meeting rooms and personal booths branching off the central walkway.
Where some spaces lacked natural light such as within the tea point, the introduction of wall graphics were added to brighten the mood and present the illusion of a panoramic in the country side, giving the office a similar look to Bennelong’s Sydney office. We also designed a wall graphic for the reception, this was a great opportunity to add context to the location of the London office, displaying an iconic Piccadilly view. Additional materials such as warm walnut, ceramic floor tiles and thick pile inset rugs add to the clean, smart and understated look and feel to the space.
