Housed within a 1960s era warehouse, the project is a small interior office fitout for Crimson Education’s technology teams. Spatially open in planning, the design was conceived as a new timber grounded insertion within an existing brick and glass surround with heavy structural steel elements floating above.

Inspiration for colour was driven by the red tones of the existing steel protective primer coatings and the poetic way in which this tied in with the client’s name. In-situ steel was painted in Dulux’s Red Rock, with gloss paint for its reflective quality against the flatness of the ceiling and acoustic panels. The free-standing meeting pods and shelving units are powder coated in Dulux Matt Pioneer Red, as they are a mixture of aluminium and steel construction but were needing to be visually homogeneous and hard-wearing.
