BISLEY SHOWROOM

Westminster, London

The new showroom is situated on Great Portland Street within an imposing stone dressed brick elevation of a building built originally for a car showroom in 1913. The accommodation for the Bisley range of office equipment is arranged on ground and basement floors and provides 500sqm of display area and ancillary facilities. The large volume which existed as basement level has been exploited by the removal of part of the ground floor directly behind the shopfront. The resultant double-height volume benefits from both the introduction of daylight, and views into it from the street.
