We started working with the Longview team to define a brief and search for a new space to house their growing team. Working closely with the consultant team we delivered due diligence assessments on several buildings and Savoy Strand stood out, with its beautiful blend of retained and new floorplate.
It was however a building that raised technical challenges in delivering Longview’s requirements for cellular space. Our highly collaborative design team were able to collectively engineer solutions, the result being an elegant and sympathetic scheme, maximizing the wonderful floor to ceiling heights and heritage glazing.
Longview wanted to ensure clients were welcomed into the heart of the space and visually linked to the working environment within a central collaboration/social hub.
As Longview continue to expand their London team, future flexibility and the ability to accommodate the larger team without adding more desks was critical. The central hub also answers this requirement on the peak days, ensuring a variety of spaces to work for all.
