Stylish makeover for iconic 1980s City of London offices

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

OFFICES at an iconic riverside building in the City of London have undergone an internal transformation to become a new serviced office business centre.

The makeover at the 1980s Northern and Shell Building in Lower Thames Street has been undertaken by Southwark-based Resonate Interior Architecture on behalf of serviced apartment operator Halkin.

Resonate was tasked with revamping 100,000 sq ft of space over floors 4 to 10 of the unmistakable glass fronted building. One level has been turned into a dedicated co-working space with its own library and a lounge that incorporates a working fire.

A white marble floor lends a fresh, contemporary feel and a handmade Murano glass chandelier has been suspended from the ceiling in the large atrium.

Halkin’s 10 year lease at 10 Lower Thames Street was announced in March this year. Michael Kingshott, Chairman of Halkin Management Ltd commented:

“Resonate’s unique ability to fulfil Halkin’s creative brief to design the interiors of Lower Thames Street has unquestionably been one of the building’s main selling points for our tenants, seamlessly blending technology, fine art and design to separate Halkin from its competitors.”
