This office for a global management consultancy involved extensive renovation of a central London building. The architect, Gensler, created a three-storey atrium at the heart of the project. This atrium, which includes a glass stair and a lift core, links visually to office and support areas, creating a feeling of transparency and openness.
Allgood supplied the ironmongery to a very high specification. It included Sembla 840mm back-to-back pull handles and levers in stainless steel. There are 72 series locks, 9151 door closers and newly introduced Emit lock cylinders.
The judges were impressed by the use of electronic cylinders and of electro-access equipment, and said they were 'very impressed by the building in all aspects'.
