Client SEA Design

When branding agency SEA Design sought to expand their studios in 2015, ArchitecturePLB was asked to advise on the design concept, layout and look and feel for their new space. The studio spans three storeys, providing studio and office space at basement and first floor levels, whilst the ground floor is client facing, incorporating a gallery, presentation and event space. The existing layout and design was for two horizontally split units, with three stairs. ArchitecturePLB developed a strategy to unite the spaces with a single open plan stair case, with glass floors added to introduce visual connections and natural light to the basement studio. Retaining the building’s existing fabric, sections of raw brick walls are complemented by exposed metal framework and self finish resin floors.
