Waterfront Atrium, Hammersmith, London

Located within the renowned Hammersmith Embankment overlooking the Thames, this multi-storey office development had a large reception atrium space which needed updating from the 20 year old finishes it had, to meet changing tenant expectations.

A complex project with a full scale re-designed atrium, including a dramatic four storey high specially commissioned joinery feature, limestone flooring, accent and feature lighting, timber lift lobby ceilings with integrated lighting, café bar and seating areas, interior landscaping and forming a new rear entrance. The scheme created an environment where people can work or take a break in oasis of calm and creativity.

All the above had to be achieved in a fully occupied building with minimal disruption to the building occupants – no problem!

As architects we worked in collaboration with the Client and Vernier to transform and revitalise the atrium reception at Waterfront, a large and challenging space. I was delighted that Vernier’s project execution not only fulfilled but surpassed our design intent, in terms of quality and detailing.
