An opulent interior
TateHindle’s redevelopment reinstates the grandeur and a high quality interior inspired by Art Deco with a sympathetic refurbishment that befits the building's heritage. Interiors compliment the historic fabric of the building and feature bespoke detailing and finishes throughout. A new double height reception with mezzanine and feature stair creates a grand entrance. It pays homage to the double storey banking hall that had previously been a focal feature of TSB's headquarters and which had been infilled in the ‘80s refurbishment. New coffered ceilings compliment the geometrical flooring design, while black and white detailing enhances the opulence of the space and also lends a contemporary feel. The grand stair and walkway balustrade features a carefully detailed and elegant elliptical design that visually connects ground and mezzanine spaces.
A spacious interior creates an inspiring and comfortable hotel like office environment for staff, and provides a mix of private and open plan workspaces alongside leisure facilities including a restaurant, gym, games lounge and relaxation room. Featuring aged oak, marble and mirror panelling, interiors boast bespoke impeccable detailing with durable finishes.
Celebrating the Neo Classical exterior
The retained facades and historic exterior fabric have been restored, existing entrances and signage have been refined and improved. A new roof top extension and terrace provide sublime views of the city. The tile clad contemporary intervention is discreetly set back from the roof line so as to have minimal visual impact from street level.
The redevelopment reinstates an aedicule which was originally a part of the building’s roof before it was demolished in the mid ‘80s. Situated on the corner of Birchin Lane and Lombard Street, it features a hand carved stone falcon which takes pride of place as an emblem of both the company and the restored building.
