Selfridges Cultural Hub
Roz Barr Architects were tasked with designing a workspace for the creative team at Selfridges that would encourage creativity and interaction. The practice used a minimal yet dynamic colour palette, utilising materials often in raw form to create a back drop to the working and meeting areas. This is complemented by the addition of deep red details such as the tables by Muller Van Severen, and black structural frames of the Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec designed chairs. A mix of independent and collaborative spaces give the Selfridges team the freedom to adapt the space to their changing needs.
Birch plywood walls for meeeting rooms double up as informal display cases for objects, books and magazines. MDF boards in pale yellow, grey and black provide surfaces for controlled creative explosions, while concealing storage space. Exisiting plan chests were relocated from the old office and repurposed with new steel frames and laminate worktops.
