Spread over three floors, SEI’s new UK HQ speaks a consistent visual language with the purity, slickness and edginess of London’s art galleries. We installed the literal contemporary art gallery throughout the London HQ to transform the initial impression for everyone who enters. The arrival experience is one like no other with a bold orange steel staircase and a sculptural front desk, both designed by us.

Natural materials such as upcycled timber juxtapose the bold orange steel and colourful walls - creating a powerful impression. Oozing functionality and creative style, this HQ’s workplace design is certainly a crowd-pleaser. Integrated IT and 80% hot-desking has increased operational successes between the London and US HQ.

The art forms part of the West Collection, an international emerging-contemporary art collection owned by Alfred P. West, Jr., Chairman and CEO of SEI, and curated by his daughter, Paige West.
