Maple Building Reception
Create a grand entrance for this newly converted factory that will impress residents and visitors alike.
A respected 80,000 sqft building in the heart of Kentish Town. Built in the late 1800s, it started out as a furniture factory (Maple & Co by Royal appointment), was commandeered during the first world war to make fighter plane components and used as offices thereafter
Linton– a prime London commercial and residential property developer.
Created an entirely new double-height entrance lobby in the centre of the building together with a pair of guest lounges. Previously the entrance was a discrete single door at one end of the factory. To increase the sense of grandeur on arrival, we mixed white and grey marbles, mirrors and brass and bronze metalwork. Soft leathers and velvets were introduced in the seating area to soften the space and make it a luxurious place for residents and guests to convene. We also designed the desk for the 24-hour serviced lobby and the lift interiors which carry the Maple Building motif on the ceiling. GD&L also commissioned the artwork in this space and designed the bespoke carpet throughout the common parts
