BMG Chrysalis needed revolutionising. They needed a London home that shouted “music-industry”. The space needed to be both raw and edgy but also modern and professional. Their office needed to be a place that brought together the personalities of the recently merged BMG and Chrysalis. We wanted to create a workplace that would make everyone, from staff to artists, relaxed and ready to create.
The building, which was once a 1920s department store, now welcomes people with its original Victorian façade. Through the ornate Victorian lobby, visitors enter a world of effortless cool, where music is king.
We brought music to life in every inch of the space by creating an industrial chic office. Using concrete-effect wallpaper, industrial flooring, black illuminated glass and exposed duct works it keeps the office looking exactly on trend. A bespoke artistic wall of speakers, platinum discs on the ceiling and a light source that resembles music waves also complements the office design.
Encouraging everyone’s creativity, we wanted staff to personalise their own offices with music memorabilia. Two companies brought together in one buzzing new home, it’s the epitome of collaboration. A long breakfast bar provides a central point for staff to interact with each other and promote a shared environment.
This office design had to be a perfect example of an office where people can socialise, meet and work. Underlying this collaborative office is the hum of a love for music. Wherever staff go in the new BMG Chrysalis office space, they are reminded about the artists they represent, which creates a stylish and professional atmosphere.
It was important for us that our new office should be a place in which both our staff, and visiting songwriters and artists, feel comfortable.
