Marakon Associates is an American management consultant with an expanding uk base. Its existing reception in Grand Buildings, Trafalgar Square, lacked 'clarity and identity'. masp has enlarged this space, giving it a geometric simplicity, and opened up views through the meeting room behind the reception desk to Trafalgar Square. The materials used are glass, steel and limestone. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors either side of the desk are normally held in the open position to link the office corridors on either side and to allow the meeting room and reception area to be used as a single room for entertaining and other office events. The qs was Boyden & Company, and the contract cost was approximately £100,000.
