The importance of first impressions cannot be underestimated, especially when it comes to a lobby or entrance, be that an office, residential development, or a hotel. You want guests to feel welcomed into a space and gain an immediate sense of the brand.
Linenhall Plaza provides high specification Grade A office accommodation comprising approximately. 73,000 sq ft over ground and eight upper floors with a striking fully glazed frontage. Somervile worked with the team at JNP Architects and were tasked with creating a lobby that conveyed a sense of importance but also functioned as a practical access-point to the offices situated within the building. The project involved a full strip out of the lobby area with a new reception counter and a polished plaster finish to wall columns and ceramic floor tiles.

The curved feature wall was highlighted with maple battens giving the appearance of a more spacious reception area. The external doors at the front of the building were transformed by the installation of an automatic semi-circular entrance, giving the structure an impressive appearance. An important aspect of the project was considering the elevator lobby design. The four new lift lobbies provided the tenants with bright and attractive accessibility via feature lighting and glass lift surrounds - a far cry from the previous timber clad installation.
This consistent aesthetic extended to all areas of the lobby and communicated an attention to detail that gave Linenhall Plaza an attractive, professional entrance for visitors. The upgraded stairwell that led to the basement was again, stripped back and given a full redecoration with dramatic charcoal walls, polished ceramic tiled stairs, and striking feature lighting.
