Shower and changing area plus kitchenettes and storage at Baker Street, London
Together with our in-house joinery division, Cre8 Joinery Solutions, we’ve delivered a new basement shower and changing area, as well as kitchenettes and additional storage for staff at the redeveloped office on Baker Street in London.
The new office building in the heart of London’s Marylebone district has been totally redesigned and reimagined with an extensive refurbishment inside and out. A major part of the project involved the creation of the new basement area which we fitted out with staff shower and changing facilities to accommodate those walking or cycling into the office – something which is fast becoming a standard facility demanded by today’s office workers.
Working with the Collins Construction team, we designed, manufactured and installed our Forte solid grade laminate shower cubicles in an on-trend dark grey. The spacious cubicles include ample space for users to change after showering, with the addition of a bespoke fold-down bench provided for extra convenience.
The solid grade laminate we used not only provides an attractive smooth finish, but is also totally impervious to water and is easy to clean, so it will withstand high levels of traffic to remain in pristine condition for years to come. The satin anodised aluminium pedestal legs ensure minimal floor clearance is required to provide users with maximum privacy while the ‘D’ shaped satin anodised aluminium headrail and black indicator bolts add a contemporary touch to the cubicles.
We also installed bespoke white Corian solid surface vanity units in the superloos within the new changing area. The crisp units feature an inset sink plus wastebin for paper towels to save space and keep the washroom clean, tidy and clutter-free. Corian is perfect for vanities as it creates a hygienic and durable surface and its natural stone-like appearance means there’s no need to compromise on aesthetics.
Our specialist joinery division, Cre8 Joinery Solutions, created small bespoke breakout kitchenette units with integral storage as a way to partition the kitchen space from the rest of the office and provide additional storage. The stylish storage wall design features black powder-coated metal supports with individual oak cube-like shelves. The sleek dark grey units in the kitchenettes and main kitchens were specified to match the simple grey and white colour palette used throughout the building.
The team also crafted a bespoke oak staircase which runs on every level of the building and installed new oak slatted wall panels throughout to complete the design.
