PHOENIX CNE , Richmond
The original layout
We were recommended to Phoenix CNE by White Hart Associates whose office we designed and built last Autumn. Their existing first floor office had a walkway that ended at a white wall with an odd door; it looked unfinished and didn't respect Feng Shui. The European Director had been given a piece of artwork made up of antique printing letters. They were stuck on an MDF board, painted orange, in the shape of Phoenix's logo. She didn't like the orange background as it looked "cheap" and didn't compliment the antique letters. The doors and storewall were moved to allow us to design something better.
We proposed that we relocate the antique letters onto a white glass disc using a specialist art restorer. The glass would be backlit by LED strip wrapped round the artwork mount. The artwork was then to be positioned to the back of a the recess which was finished off by using a white acrylic back panel and beading edge. The LED's were connected the main light circuit to be on at all times when the office was open. The effect would fit in but stand out.
Our design incorporates a new protruding feature wall which finishes the walkway properly and allows the newly mounted artwork to send you back into the office to respect Feng Shui. A gold metallic wallpaper to bring in wealth and a lit recessed artwork to bring in warmth.
