B3 Designers has recently completed new interiors for the London offices of internationally renowned visual effects specialists Moving Picture Company (MPC). The project, carried out over several floors in the Wardour Street office building in Soho, consisted of redesigning co-working and studio suites as well as creating the top-floor Sky Bar – a stylish in-house bar and social space predominantly used for client entertainment and flexible working.
Inspiration for the design throughout all floors is artfully mid-century, and the palette is flooded with natural materials and earthy colours: olive, mild steel, rich and charred timber and walnut, pewter and leather.
The appealing mid-century aesthetic of the Sky Bar has been replicated throughout the first and third floors, dedicated to workspace offices only. Situated at the entrance to the floor are two break-out booths and an armchair sitting in an alcove featuring shelving adorned with varied cinema-themed items. The corridors surrounding the seven separated offices are painted with block colours, decorated with artwork, and lead to the presentation office in the centre of the floorplan. This is the only space a client may visit to be presented with first movie themes and the suite of services MPC provides. Creating a vibrant and colourful thoroughfare was instrumental in the client journey. Each of the seven offices within this floor mirror the dark colour scheme and textures of the Sky Bar above.
