tp bennett has completed a design and build project for the new Lloyds Verde/ TSB headquarters at 20 Gresham Street.
The design team were faced with a unique challenge: to design and create a bank with a new identity that took as its lead a new ‘post-crisis’ approach. This new bank had to be different from that which had gone before it. The economics, brand, look and feel must all be new. Fundamentally the working practices would have to dramatically change to embrace non-assigned working in an ambitious agile environment.
Working closely with the branding team, a complimentary scheme has been created that provides a transparent, innovative and friendly environment to emphasis the new bank’s ethos. Alternative furniture and finishes were used in the collaboration & breakout areas, helping to create a less corporate, more homely space in which staff and clients can interact. A range of textured and patterned fabrics and finishes create interest and comfort throughout and different floor finishes highlight areas instead of partitions and storage.
The new office space has achieved an Environmental BREEAM Rating of Excellent with an EPC Rating of B.
