Bespoke cubicle design at Hammer House, London
We designed and delivered a bespoke toilet cubicle especially for Hammer House creating a washroom which complements the iconic building’s unique history.
Located on Wardour Street in the Soho area of London, Hammer House became home to one of the world’s oldest film companies, the internationally famous Hammer Film productions in 1949. The 1950s saw Hammer Film productions rise to fame with a string of classic gothic horror films including The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy. While Hammer Film is no longer based at Hammer House, the office building has retained the name in homage to its role in the Hammer Film story. Today Hammer House provides modern office space set over several floors, with an Art Deco inspired entrance hall and reception area.
We recently delivered new washrooms at Hammer House and one of the key elements of the brief was to ensure they were in-keeping with the building’s style and our bespoke cubicle design provided the perfect solution.
With its floor to ceiling construction, our full height Alto Laminate cubicle provides complete privacy for end users, making it a popular choice within the office sector. A crisp white high pressure laminate was specified for the cubicles at Hammer House to make the washrooms feel light but also to highlight features such as the retro green patterned tiles of the vanity splashbacks, allowing them to become a focal point of the design. What makes the Alto cubicles unique for Hammer House is the addition of bespoke timber mouldings around the edge of each door, which were designed to mirror the Art Deco style of the building.
The final finishing touch for this washroom space is the brass-effect ironmongery including taps and door furniture. In recent years we’ve seen a shift away from standard stainless steel and chrome fittings in favour of a wider range of finishes including copper, bronze and brass. The slightly muted matt finish of the brass ironmongery used here fits perfectly as part of the Art Deco inspired washroom design.
