No 10

Brief

ASF were approached to fit out the cafeteria of a famous political landmark right in the heart of London’s Westminster. The facilities were in need of an upgrade to meet modern standards and preserve the historic building for generations to come. We relished the opportunity to become part of such an important building and did so with our trademark competence and respect.

Challenges

ASF understood how crucial it was that the refurbishment and any alterations were respectful of this building that was steeped in history, every detail was planned with care and attention.

Of course, the fit out work needed to be completed within a strict budget. The ASF team are always ready to handle costings and deliver projects on budget so we knew how important managing costs would be on the refurbishment of a historical building. At the same time, the purpose of the rooms meant that a high standard needed to be achieved in the finishes, from the carpentry to that final coat of paint.

Results

ASF have years of experience in restaurant fit outs to cafeteria fit outs of different scales. It was a real pleasure to put our craftsmanship to use on such a historic building.

Our highly-skilled team started by reimagining the layout, creating a sense of more space and connecting the seating area to the outdoors through its proximity to the courtyard. This space design was a crucial part of creating a relaxing environment for users with busy working lives. We introduced a contemporary serving area with subtle industrial details that would still complement the more traditional colour scheme. It was also important to install new recycling points and ensure accessibility to all users whilst maintaining the building’s original features.

We love handling whole refurbishments that take the stress away from our clients’ busy schedules. For No 10, we managed the entire project from start to finish and completed the work on schedule and on budget so that the normal working order of this political hub could continue with a brand new feel to where the staff relax.
