Bespoke joinery firm, The Deluxe Group, has completed a major central London workspace project for The Crown Estate. Working in association with fit-out firm BW, for architects Barr Gazetas, The Deluxe Group was appointed to manufacture and fit bespoke joinery for the high-end flexible working space, One Heddon Street, a Grade II listed building, just off Regent Street.
Detailed manufacturing drawings based on the designer’s intent were completed at The Deluxe Group’s Northern Ireland headquarters by their in-house team and the work included the manufacturing of all solid surfaces and bespoke fitted furniture within the professional workspace hub.
Speaking about the project, Colm Connolly, Director at The Deluxe Group, said: “One Heddon Street has been a really exciting development to work on and one which adds to the growing portfolio of high-end London projects we have delivered in the past year. Using the highest quality material and our specialist detailed joinery skills, our team has created an impressive luxury finish with the same level of attention to detail our clients expect from us.”
Barr Gazetas said: “Our design places people at its heart, using natural materials to create a warm, welcoming space aimed at fostering creativity. With a simple and effective design, it was of the utmost importance that all fixtures and furniture were created with a high-quality finish.
“The Deluxe Group were very helpful in working with us to maintain the design aesthetic and principles throughout the construction phase whilst also offering solutions if any problems were encountered on site.
“The large curved planter in reception and the seamless hi macs and timber clad staircase in the café are highlights of the project and a testament to The Deluxe Groups craftsmanship and willingness to work with us to push boundaries and create something unique.”
Described as a dedicated co-working and flexible office space, One Heddon Street was designed to create a new hub for professionals, start-ups, and project teams in the heart of London’s West End.
The space offers 350 desks and a breadth of flexible memberships, ranging from private offices for two to twelve people, to resident desks and co-working. Members are also able to draw on shared amenities, including bookable meeting rooms, boardroom, concierge services, a private roof terrace, and flexible events space, as well as a specially curated programme of wellbeing activities and networking events.
The Deluxe Group has worked on projects across Ireland, UK as well as in Europe, the US and Middle East from small budget projects to large-scale including The Devonshire Club and E by Equinox in London, and Belfast’s new AC Hotel by Marriott.
