Higgs Boson

Making the most of a compact space in the heart of London


The Brief

The idea was simple. To transform their space into an area filled with vintage character, but at the same time possessing a clean, minimalist feel which represents the modern company they are. The client even went as far as saying they wanted it to feel like they were living in a “penthouse living room”.


Our designer worked hard to achieve the client’s specification, carefully handpicking items from a wide selection of suppliers to perfectly suit the brief. A vintage ambience was achieved in the kitchen/breakout area using an array of heavy woods for the furniture, combining them with dark steels found on the meticulously selected pendant lighting and lamps. Clean white workstations were used in conjunction with a specially constructed white storage wall to make full use of the natural light being emitted through the floor to ceiling glass windows on either side of the space. The workstations were  laid out in such a way to invite communication between the team, while still allowing each member to have their own unique space with individual desks.

“We are absolutely delighted with our new office and look forward to coming in to work every day. The team at CDOI were able to convert our thoughts into reality, and proved themselves to be extremely empathetic to our functional and aesthetic requirements.” - Dermot O’Connor DipPFS Independent Financial Adviser
