Located in the heart of the fast changing Aldgate East, the brief for 18 Mansell Street was to turn the existing office space and reception into a property suited to the TMT market. The discovery of an existing concrete coffered ceiling drove the design towards the industrial look and feel akin to a Shoreditch warehouse. By introducing a simple palette of refined materials and by opening out the office floor-plate, both spaces have been elevated to achieve the much demanded aesthetic. The location of services in the raised access floor and perimeter fan coil units allows the concrete ceiling to be kept clean for maximum visual impact. Floor to ceiling heights are maximised at an impressive 3m. Now completed, 18 Mansell Street serves as an indicator towards the next happening area of TMT styled regeneration.
