Main Project Info
19 Eastbourne Terrace is a Grade I Listed building designed in the 1850€™s by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, it was constructed as part of the terminus for the Great Western Railway at Paddington Station.
The external appearance of the building is styled to resemble Georgian town houses but the internal spaces are far more grand, arranged as a series of dramatic, high ceilinged function rooms, each floor has a different character ranging from dark brick vaults to ballrooms. dMFK were appointed by The Office Group, a leading provider in boutique style ‘office clubs’ to fit out this complex building as part of a subscription based members club and part serviced office. This includes flexible touch down desk spaces, informal meeting areas, communal working and private meeting rooms all trying to capture the romance of rail travel, and the weight of this impressive building. Many of the original features were covered up in the 1970€™s, so we exposed and restored the original fabric whilst creating a series of distinct modern interventions designed to be distinct, but also blend with the Brunel original.
Whilst the office spaces are relatively functional, the focus has been on lifting common areas, club areas, break out spaces, WC’s, corridors, and other often neglected spaces to be more akin to a hotel than an office building.
