Antin Infrastructure Partners, a leading private equity firm focused on infrastructure investments, were looking to relocate their office as they were approaching a lease event and needed a space to accommodate their expansion as they took on new business. We collaborated with their senior teams in London and Paris to develop a design reflective of their Parisian office, which could create a sense of continuity for their employees who split their time between the two cities. The partners envisioned a high-end office design with a premium and timeless feel that would reflect the quality and stability of their business.
Our client chose a listed building in Mayfair for their new office, where we delivered a Cat B fit out across two floors and installed a striking integral staircase with bespoke joinery to connect the ground and first floors. A two-storey workplace improves the client experience as their point of arrival is removed from the working floor, yet still easily accessible. The central staircase celebrates the scale of the workplace while opening up void areas to compliment the light tones, soft indirect illumination and borrowed natural light through the glazing. The working floors benefit from high ceilings to further enhance the natural light to create a calm, professional and high-performing working environment.
Every function of Antin Infrastructure Partners’ business is catered for, with cellular offices for executives, two lounges and a library for hosting clients, and a fully catered kitchen where employees can interact away from client-facing areas. A range of meetings spaces that vary in formality support the residential undertone conveyed in the brief and can accommodate both internal and external requirements. From boardrooms to luxurious lounges, each space in our client’s new workplace exhibits elements of quality craftsmanship and sets the investment managers up for continued success.
