Commercial Interior Design Case Studies
Posted on 12th July 2021
At Design and Visual, we are proud of the work we have achieved across the UK to provide our clients with the commercial interiors they have requested for their building and design projects. Here, we have provided a sample of some of our most famous commercial interior design case studies, demonstrating our work to you and assisting you in your considerations of what you need for your own interior design.
If you wish to view a larger selection of our work, please see our Projects page.

An Office Design Case Study
Location: The Walbrook Building, Cannon Street, London
This futuristic design is one of the largest sites in Central London, and was planned and built as a head office location for a number of different businesses and a range of retailers. We were enlisted to work as specialist glass reinforced gypsum (GRG) contractors for this project, casting bespoke column encasements which accommodated the shape and architectural design of the building, both in its interior and around its exterior.
Our skill and experience resulted in the completion of a complex design with precise requirements, both within time and on budget. This ensured that the clients and the architect received the exact design they’d been hoping for in the way of commercial interiors, including an exact abutment with a window mullion. The plan of the interior and the creation of these pieces provided full exposure to natural daylight, offering a bright working environment for employees.

A Lobby Design Case Study
Location: Yell Office, Reading
For the Yell offices in Reading, we were called to provide custom moulded GRG components, forming various diameter dropped circular ceiling features. These were specifically required, as they had previously been chosen as the best material and our fabrication work had been selected as the best method of build to achieve the high quality, architecturally complex finish the architect had requested.
The pieces ordered for this project were used throughout the lobby and restaurant ceiling areas, creating features that are ideal for catching the eyes of visitors as they enter the building and approach the reception desks. To suspend these above the rest of the interior from the existing slab, we also designed and installed a lightweight metal support framework.

A Shopping Centre Case Study
Location: O2 Shopping Centre, London
For this design project, a number of different GRG features were manufactured and installed across several floors of the shopping centre. We were contracted to cast and install a series of columns in this material on the ground and first floors, as well as the atrium, while installing a curved bulkhead and cladding two escalators. This was all achieved in an interior design style matching the bright, clean existing space.
This project had a unique element in that the retail centre remained open and fully operational while the work was carried out. As professionals with an understanding of the client’s requirements, we did everything we could to ensure our building work did not affect the running of any businesses or the needs of the general public.

A Railway Station Case Study
Location: Birmingham New Street, Birmingham
The open-plan space of this railway station’s atrium became the setting of our work, which saw the manufacture and installation of several GRG column encasements that featured complex geometric designs. The architect had requested these to provide a dramatic, awe-inspiring walk through the station for passengers and other customers.
The result of this was the elegant, contemporary design that we’d been asked for, and that you may find has become a popular element and theme in the features of many commercial interior design case studies across the UK. The work was achieved with the use of stretched ceiling fabric, as well as the moulded and manufactured GRG encasements we installed.

Fluted wall panels are a popular way to add shape and feature to a room by replacing a normally flat wall (or ceiling) surface with one that has a series of straight grooved recesses. Flute architecture dates back to the ancient Greeks, where it appeared on the stone columns and pilasters of temples, and has […] Read Full Story
