Refurbishment,123 Victoria Street, 227,200 sq ft

Scope:

Interior design and architecture of entrance and two receptions, staircase, common parts including lobbies and WCs

Our role:

Interior architectural design

“While it is now understood that buildings from the 1970s can, with judicious refurbishment and upgrading, satisfy the technical requirements of the current generation of office workers, it is also important to create an ambiance that tells tenants that they are entering a contemporary workplace and that they are being valued. The interiors of the building and the environments where we work are as important, if not more important than the external façade, especially if relatively transparent, play a vital role in setting the tone of a street. We believe that we have addressed both these issues by creating high-quality contemporary reception spaces that work well and also give something back to the passer-by both through their elegance and in the fascination of the moving artwork by Conrad Shawcross.”

Linda Morey- Burrows, Principal Director, MoreySmith

MoreySmith has led the high specification refurbishment of the public areas at 123 Victoria Street, introducing an understated luxury that creates a breath-taking first impression designed to attract both new office tenants and a new standard of retail. 

123 Victoria Street offers flexible modern office space with stylish interiors and the very best in retail accommodation across 12 floors and 227,200 sq ft. As well as striking new reception areas, stunning views from the unusual terraces, and an entirely transformed external façade, 123 Victoria Street now boasts carefully selected art installations, the most prominent being Conrad Shawcross’s work at the Victoria Street entrance.

The installation; a ceiling height rotating sculpture, which appears to float through the space as it revolves, brings animation, dynamic reflections and intrigue to the area, capturing the attention of potential occupiers and passers-by alike with its intricate craftsmanship.
