Sophie Fidler, one of our location designers, shares her notes, thoughts and inspirations behind two of our new workspaces in Hatton Garden. (Also, she designed all the prints!)
Hatton Garden is a little 'hood in the London Borough of Camden. It is most famous for being London's jewellery quarter and the centre of the UK diamond trade. Fun fact: the largest burglary in English legal history occurred in Hatton Garden just last year, where 4 elderly men stole £200 million (yes, $266 million U.S. dollars) worth of gems. But no worries, they're in prison.
The four-story building boasts large windows, modern lines, and some pretty amazing herringbone wood floors (❤️ ). These features give each space the perfect mix of old and new.
Because the spaces themselves looked so good without anything in them, we were very careful to use as little furniture as possible, while making sure they were comfy, functional, and fun.
The rooms are similar in their essence, but are differentiated by some fun design elements. Both are contemporary, and nod to different design movements. Room #1 featuring a bit of a Bauhaus feel with its primary colour accents, while Room #2 pops with some inspiration from the Memphis Group (think 80's shapes and colours).
6-7 Hatton Garden will have you and the team feeling like a million (or 200 million) bucks.
