McCann Erikson London
The fast moving nature of the marketing services industry created particular challenges for us when we were commissioned to design the interior of these London offices. Unclear for most of the project as to whom the end user would be, the solution was to create a generic office with enough built-in flexibility to withstand further changes of configuration and occupancy.
Mackay + Partners aimed to give the interior a robust personality that suited the industrial, exposed concrete aesthetic of the building and would be strong enough to withstand the ‘churn’ of internal reconfigurations. McCann Erikson chose simple and muted colour palette of black, grey, and sliver but supplemented these with four accent colours providing visual highlights throughout the five storey building.
