Situated at the heart of Hammersmith Town Centre in West London, the recently refurbished late 70’s building Glen House offers approximately 32,000 sq ft of high spec CAT A office space with a few perks like bike parking, showers and roof terrace.
The refurbishment scheme was designed by the award-winning architectural practice Delvendahl Martin Architects, covering all main and shared areas, including the new reception.
Glen House features a 5 storey late 70’s Art Deco building close to Hammersmith Station. The work was carried out by the London based property investment and development group Romulus. Following the architect’s brief, they remodelled the reception area, extended the office area on the fourth floor to create a contemporary workspace with plenty of daylight.
The interiors were stripped down to expose the concrete coffered slabs and columns. The design scheme is strongly referencing to Art Deco and was also influenced by the bold geometric forms of Brutalist architecture. Based on simple geometrical shape, the bespoke commercial lighting has become a part of the fabric of the building.
THE DESIGN BRIEF.
The main design feature of the building are the exposed concrete coffered slabs ceilings. The cohesion of the whole scheme was achieved by referencing the shape of the coffered slabs with the shape of the bespoke architectural lighting in the reception area.
Our team approached the project team at Romulus to discuss the office lighting for the project. Suspended lighting has been specified by the architectural practice to enhance the exposed coffered slabs and provide good quality artificial lighting to promote wellbeing.
The linear LED lighting Rio Suspended was put forward as a contemporary looking energy efficient LED linear profile.
The clean lines of RIO Suspended enhance the exposed coffered slabs, adding bold visual feature and texture to the space. Thanks to its clean aesthetics, excellent performance and high visual comfort, the RIO is a popular choice of linear light for working environment.
