Champagne House HQ

Architect: Fraher Architects
Location: Belgravia, London
Completion: 2014

The new UK headquarters for a prestigious Champagne House in SW1 focused on bringing elements of the French Estate across the Channel and into an historic existing building.

All of the elements installed, including overarching lighting rigs and large glazed partitions, could only have light fixings to the building as its existing finishes could not be altered. This meant that the desks needed to be used as buttresses and cantilever bases to keep the stresses and fixing points away from the historic fabric.
