The fit-out of our new studios at 40 Norman Road in Greenwich is now in its final stages. With the plastering finished and furniture on order, all going well we will be moving to our new home in early December.
Our studio sits on the ground and first floor of the Caledonian Point development, a scheme for Family Mosaic which has delivered 85 high quality contemporary apartments on the edge of Deptford Creek. The main commercial space is located along the southern corner and western sides of the development; the prominence of this space is defined by coloured glazed panels creating a vibrant double height corner for the building which is clearly visible when approaching from Greenwich Station.
The project was conceived by bptw partnership to enable the redevelopment of our former offices, and involvement from all disciplines within the practice has been crucial to the successful realisation. Following construction by contractor Durkan, bptw’s architects and visualisers developed an exciting interior design scheme which has been brought to life through CGIs and animated fly-throughs. The scheme provides welcoming creative spaces including extended meeting room facilities, a model making space, and a large open plan office with views over the creek. A staff café and creative hub on the ground floor has been designed to be flexible and can be transformed into a multifunctional space for learning and entertaining, enabling bptw to host a range of activities and functions.
Our new studios will provide some much needed space for bptw to continue to expand, and we are eager to begin this new chapter in our history. Our graphics and marketing team have been documenting the development process and are creating a new book to celebrate the practice’s journey. We are developing a programme of internal and external events which will take us through to next year when we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary.
