38 Seymour Street

The project lies within the Portman Estate conservation area and has been refurbished to provide approximately 11,600 sq ft of high spec office. The building presents modern, open-plan office floors designed to the latest standards. The project involved more than trebling the size of the previous reception and establishing open-plan office space throughout where previously much of the accommodation was cellular.

The project and its bespoke interior represents the Portman Estate's sustained efforts to provide modern, functional commercial office space in Central London and to pursue a vision for the Estate, Marylebone and the surrounding areas.

In collaboration with the renowned artists Timorous Beasties, a highly bespoke interior has been created for the reception area, which ties a link back to the history of the site itself, and creates a legacy for the Portman Estate, who occupied the property for over 60 years prior to its current refurbishment. By using the abstract motif of the plane tree in the bespoke artwork for the reception area, a connection is created between the refurbished building and the historic Portman Square nearby.
