AIS Association of Interior Specialists Fit Out Short List Announced
CPS Interiors are delighted to announce that they have been included in the final three for Interior Fit Outs up to £750,000.
The project was completed at Bombardier Transportation, Derby.
Formerly an old engine workshop, the brief was to create a new reception area to include meeting rooms and office space. The preliminary design proposed to block up the original arch shape windows and change the front façade of the building. However, we suggested retaining the historic features which inspired us to base our interior design around the existing building features.
The installation included a glazed internal porch with curved MF ceiling to suit the great arched windows above, which maximised the natural daylight flooding into the building. This along with full height Komfort Klassic ash glazed partitioning created a light and airy environment. A central corridor ran between two curved front sections either side of the bespoke curved ash reception counter, symmetrical in design with floor to ceiling glass.
We introduced the corporate colours and railway theme of Bombardier by using wide striped frosted manifestation on glazed panels giving the impression of a railway track, continuing with regimentally laid striped planks of carpet along the plain carpeted corridor. This complimented the stylish slate vinyl flooring, ash doors and frames, luxurious grey leather suite and coffee table creating the wow factor upon entering the reception area.
The winner will be chosen by Richard Jordan, project director at architects Pringle Brandon.
The winner will be announced at the AIS President’s Lunch to be held at the Dorchester Hotel, London on 12 June 2012.
