AKA Design Creates New Workspaces For Whitehouse Relocation

News Image
Studio furniture specialist AKA Design has fitted out ten editing suites for Whitehouse Post Production from its AKA Custom range, a bespoke design and build studio interiors service.
Whitehouse had used AKA for its previous premises and had no hesitation in returning when moving into a listed Georgian town house in Central London.
Angus Wallace, Whitehouse's technical manager, said: "We found AKA's Guy Wilson very helpful, understanding, on the ball and - increasingly important - well priced."
The brief required working spaces that not only complimented the building's wood panelled walls and 'listed' interior, but it was also a functional, clean and modern environment for the company's film editing work.
Wallace said: "We didn't want the building to be stuck in a set period of time, but to have a fresh, modern feel, representing the spirit of what we do. We had several meetings with AKA and our architects, where we went into the workshop, mocked up desks and went through various designs and options. It was very useful to see what we were getting without committing to it all being built, and we got exactly what we wanted and expected."
AKA's Operations Director Alistair Davies oversaw the Whitehouse installation. He said: "After our first meeting we had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve. Using a solid core laminate on all surfaces, we were able to create the solid, crisp white lines the client desired. A steel frame allowed us to take the majority of weight out of the desks, which assisted in the install without compromising the structure of the desk. The install was a great success; we kept to the client's budget while achieving their vision."
Wallace and the team at Whitehouse are delighted with their AKA-equipped edit suites. Wallace said: "The furniture fits in the environment, and works perfectly in terms of size and feel foe what we wanted and needed. The level of finish is superb and the install process was certainly one of the easiest parts of us moving buildings."
AKA Design offers a bespoke design and build studio interiors service and has also developed a range of off-the-shelf, flat-packed furniture with the option of combining elements of both to suit clients' individual requirements. Further information is available at: www.akadesign.co.uk.
