Fletcher Priest Architects has just unveiled its latest masterpiece: the interior design and fit-out of two floors at One Hooper’s Court. The 27,000 sq ft workspace was tailored for a private client in the investment management scene and was holistically designed to reflect the building’s lobby and broader Knightsbridge Estate in London. 

The design blends architectural and design elements from the estate and the Fletcher Priest-designed One Hooper’s Court reception through a unified aesthetic that runs through the entire space. Materials and details, like the enchanting floral motif inspired by John Hooper, the 18th Century gardener of Knightsbridge, add character to the interior. 

Fletcher Priest worked closely with the occupier to create a unique design language that celebrates the firm’s role as a quantitative, research-led investment manager. Together they drew inspiration from mathematical and geometrical patterns found in nature, weaving them into the broader design narrative. “We greatly enjoyed designing this scheme in close collaboration with the tenant, to produce a space which reflects their work and offers them a considered and highly tailored amenity space for entertaining clients both internally and externally,” says Lucy Priest, associate at the practice. 

The office supports new ways of working with phone booths tucked away within the timber core and a ‘secret meeting room’ featuring backlit timber joinery and a bespoke inlaid meeting room table courtesy of British heritage manufacturer, William Hands. Other specially designed joinery details including stools that tuck away into the body of the banquette, lending a space for flexible and collaborative work. In the heart of the office, a monochrome timber frame acts as a ‘trading theatre,’ and large screens provide real-time data. A bespoke collaboration table transitions from a focused workspace to a breakout area surrounded by biophilia.  

The bespoke hand-finished timber and metal staircase is perhaps one of the most noticeable features, inspired by the Fibonacci mathematical sequence – giving a playful nod to nature and towards the tenant’s data-led outlook. Connected to the staircase is amenities including tea-points and a feature bar with a moody and tonal palette which acts as the social hub of the office. The bar area opens onto a terrace complete with planters, a pergola, and a BBQ area. Additional amenities include a training and games room, connected to the office by a movable wall, and a wellness suite boasting a gym, showers, a relaxation room – and even a doctor’s room.
