82 Dean Street is a distinctive 1980's building in the heart of Soho. The project scope was to refurbish both the interior and exterior to provide high quality CAT A office space that appealed to the media market.
We reconfigured the ground floor to provide a generous reception space facing onto Dean Street with a new entrance with frameless glass doors and canopy that gave a greater sense of arrival. The reception space is animated by a bespoke lighting installation consisting of over 10,000 LED's mounted behind a 6 x 3m glass screen. A digital artist was commissioned to programme the wall to respond to peoples motion via a ceiling mounted camera as they enter the building and move around the reception. The installation can be tailored to incorporate the logos or branding of the buildings future tenants.
The upper floors were fully refurbished inside and out including a new terrace at 5th floor level. Continuous colour changing LED lighting to the window heads at each level animate the building at night and compliment the lighting installation in the reception. New air conditioning and lighting systems helped the building to achieve a BREEAM rating of 'Very Good'.
