Leadenhall Street

Breathing new life into a reception area for 80 Leadenhall Street, a commercial office building in the heart of the City of London. Woldon were invited to create a welcoming reception area, keeping the integrity of the buildings character, and grounding the design in the City of London. The refurbishment was undertaken with a direct commercial objective to maximise office occupancy by attracting new tenants into the building.

Woldon embarked on the reception interiors with a forward-thinking approach akin to rebranding. Our inspired thinking incorporated elements of the local, including Leadenhall Market aesthetic as an anchor for what attracts people to the area. Its’ identify sets the location apart and embeds its’ character and flavour within the new reception.

Designs included the removal of the existing cracked flooring, replaced with a historic herringbone timber to add texture and warmth. The walls were carefully refurbished with a deep burgundy leather and new acoustic slatted walnut timber to provide screening. Brass lighting and FF&E were collaboratively incorporated to allow for a more inviting and sophisticated entry into the building, in-keeping with the seven-storey building's character and location.  The material palette focused on a rich timbers, deep burgundy leather, and brass detailing to accent, inspired by the historic coffee houses and local market. Sustainable materials were an important consideration and resulted in a space which feels generous, attractive, and organised, crafted with thoughtful design.
