The Baltic Exchange is a City of London institution and occupies an equally impressive Grade II listed building on St Mary Axe neighbouring ‘The Gherkin’.
The client wished to future proof their building, updating, and upgrading to provide Grade A office and retail. Paola Leon Design used our understanding of working with listed buildings to provide high end and high-quality front of house, back of house and office spaces.
With parts of the existing building interior listed (including the opulent timber panelled boardroom), careful attention was paid to the existing building fabric, structure, materials, and colours. A considerate refurbishment was carried out, restoring, enhancing, or replacing as required.
High quality materials, fixtures and fittings were used throughout all spaces. Many spaces were opened to create light, airy, collaborative settings returning the building to its former glory. In addition, the office spaces were enhanced with staff facility provision at basement level and a terrace at roof level.
