When Deneys Reitz took an additional floor above the existing two and a half floors they already occupied, our brief was to create a client area with a sense of understated elegance.
The resulting design incorporates polished marble floor tiles, several imported feature lights, flamed granite wall cladding and imported wallpaper to highlight key walls. Arper chairs; bespoke meeting tables, and tailor-designed artwork, with two signatory sculptures embodying the company’s vision and culture, provide a high level of finish without being overly opulent.
The supplementary 10th floor now houses their main reception and a 75-seater auditorium, where regular seminars and functions are held. A 20-seater boardroom, boasting state-of-the-art video conferencing facilities, opens onto an entertainment area and informal meeting room. Further meeting rooms vary in size from 4 to 10-seaters. The lower floors were redecorated and opened up to create lighter, more open-plan areas for the secretaries and candidate attorneys.
In addition to literally moving up, Deneys Reitz now joins one of the top 10 largest global practices, Norton Rose Group, from the 1st June 2011.
An interior architecture and commercial design firm with broad-based and wide-ranging expertise in creative problem solving, inspired to create beautiful spaces which are user friendly, forward thinking and sustainably focused.
