Benchmark designed and created a bespoke reception desk for the impressive atrium of the Charter Building in Uxbridge.
This office complex has been developed from its 1980's past into a future-facing, flexible workspace and the reception desk was required to be a good fit with this intelligently designed environment. The atruim of this multi-tenanted building is both a welcoming and a flexible work space.
The striking reception desk was constructed using three thick timber layers offset against each other. The layers are composed from planks of elm to create a rich, variegated design. These three levels are illuminated with downlights which enhance the architectural form of the piece. Coriam is used to create a clean, contemporary work surface.
The levels are not only architecturally striking but also serve a practical purpose to place belongings as individuals sign in at reception.
