  • Collaborating with landlord and tenant

    We were appointed to refurbish the fifth and sixth floors at 16 Eastcheap for Privalgo, a financial technology company. With prior experience of fitting out other floors of the property, we were well-equipped to meet their requirements. We provided test fits for the landlord to showcase the building’s potential to prospective tenants. Once Privalgo was identified as the tenant for these floors, we collaborated closely with both parties to design a space that seamlessly integrates with the existing property while meeting Privalgo’s specific needs.

  • Reflecting brand identity

    Privalgo’s brief called for a high-end workspace that would draw staff into the office and provide impressive event spaces for clients and visitors. To achieve this, we incorporated a mix of hospitality and residential finishes to create a homely yet sophisticated office environment. Privalgo’s brand identity is subtly yet elegantly communicated through the use of their navy-blue brand colour complemented by a marble reception area, logo manifestations, and a branded living wall. These elements ensure that the Privalgo brand is consistently represented throughout the space.

  • Combining functionality and sustainability

    The fifth floor is designed to offer a variety of workspaces for staff, including collaborative areas such as a mixed-use ping pong and meeting table, comfortable seating areas, meeting rooms, and individual phone booths. The design prioritises the user experience with a biophilic and sustainability-first approach, incorporating natural light and sustainable fabrics and materials used for the herringbone flooring and worktops. The addition of ample planting throughout the floor creates a calming environment that enhances the wellbeing of Privalgo’s teams.

  • Enhancing the client experience

    As a client-facing business, Privalgo dedicated the sixth floor to client meeting suites and guest spaces. This floor employs a residential design aesthetic, including a small library area and joinery booths with hanging planters surrounding an emerald green bar area complete with a statement lighting fixture. These design choices contribute to a luxurious experience for visitors. Additionally, a small putting green and mezzanine level add unique elements to the space, creating a resimercial setting ideal for hosting events and entertaining clients.

  • The variety of work settings, complemented by luxurious guest areas, provides Privalgo with the necessary spaces to support their business operations while creating an inviting and sophisticated environment. This thoughtful approach ensures that Privalgo’s new workspace is not only practical but also inspiring, promoting both employee engagement and client satisfaction.
