Blackburn & Co are a project management and consultancy within the property sector and a client that ThirdWay and Tribe Furniture already had a great relationship with, as they had previously closely collaborated with both ThirdWay Contracts and ThirdWay Architecture on numerous projects.

The client had outgrown their existing space and looked to find a new, vibrant and quirky home close to borough market. The building that the client moved into has a historic past as a former prison. This inspired and provoked many of the ideas for the final design and furnishings, with the primary use of industrial materials used such as metals, striped fabric textures, wireframe furniture and mesh in addition to a few vintage pieces. Pops of colour were then incorporated into fabrics and furnishings as a contrast which also added a playful touch to the design.

Small, unique details were no less considered such as the choice of materials that connect different areas, and all contribute to the clean and cohesive overall finish.

The snug area, featured in the middle of the whole space, was designed to create a subtle divide between the desking and breakout areas. This area also provided soft seating for visiting clients or informal meetings.
