One of the largest investment managers in the UK has a purpose-built headquarters campus based in the historic market town of Henley-upon-Thames. From summer 2016 to summer 2017, the entire complex underwent a major face-lift, with all five of its major buildings receiving full interior and exterior signage and graphic refurbishments.
Signage specialist, Signbox, won the Décor Award at the British Sign Awards 2017 in November for its signs and graphics project for the London office of Alpha Bank, a leading Greek financial group. Playing a key role in the award-winning project was Lintec’s UV printable architectural film, which was utilised for iconic manifestations that appear on the office glazed partitions.
Located a stone’s throw from the historic Brooklands motor and aviation museum and the aerodrome that predates it, Dakota’s name is itself a nod to the rich history of aviation in the area. In the first six months of 2017, the building’s owners had it stripped back to a shell and rebuilt to an extremely high specification throughout by contractors Oakmont Construction. It now boasts more than 35,000 feet of modern, luxury office space over four well-appointed floors.
Signbox delivers high spec wall graphics and glazing manifestations for new Alpha Bank London office18 Sep 2017
When Alpha Bank – one of Greece’s largest financial institutions – moved its offices from Canon Street to King William Street in the City of London, it commissioned Resonate Architects to transform its new space into one that exuded quality and delivered an amazing client experience – with added detail that represented its identity, ethos and Greek heritage. Having successfully worked with Signbox on many previous occasions, Resonate Architects turned to them to help to bring this project together, with main contractor Parkeray, awarding Signbox the contract to produce and install graphics for a feature wall in the staff break-out area, glazing manifestations throughout the office area, and bespoke signage for six meeting rooms.
