Clement steel windows used to transform art deco office block

A great example of 1930s art deco architecture, the Douglas Building sits on Great Titchfield Street, an area of London which is a hub for local media and IT businesses. Douglas House was acquired by serviced office providers the Office Group (TOG), which, together with Note Design Studio, transformed the building with a colourful concept that blends the distinctive 1930s features and gives a sense of fluidity, openness and light throughout.

The brief was to create a flexible workspace where people can feel stimulated by their environment, leading to greater productivity with wellness as a central focus. The building includes an oxygen room, a parents’ room and a roof terrace.

‘Well ventilated’ and ‘an abundance of natural light’ have become buzz phrases in the Covid era. The 300 new steel windows, from the Clement EB24 range, chosen by office fit out and refurbishment contractors Parkeray, perfectly facilitate both.
