Working in close collaboration with KB Architects, the office spaces were ‘defurbed’ by removing the existing ceiling tiles and exposing new services to increase ceiling heights.
Located in front of the lift shaft, the design of the feature wall and reception desk was inspired by the geometric shapes of the Titanic and the hulls of ships to reference Belfast’s shipbuilding heritage.
The feature wall was crafted by using a 3D formed MDF substrate that was prefabricated off-site and finished in polished plaster to give it a premium look and feel.
The industrial design scheme continues with the feature reception desk, which has been finished in a patinated brass to add vibrancy, texture and warmth to the surrounding exposed surfaces.
“Portview engaged early and pro-actively in the design and delivery process working collaboratively with the Architectural team to deliver our concept. They understand the value of good design and they pay close attention to the detail which was critical to the success of this project. We look forward to working with the Portview team again in the future.”
“We had a really good experience with Portivew. Throughout the process we could see that there was real attention to detail.”
“The design work and what's been done by Portview has been absolutely great and they've delivered completely what we wanted on time and on budget.”
