What We Would Have Been Doing…

Fitting Out Audley Nightingale Place…

As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to restrict our daily lives and put work commitments on hold, we’re sharing another taster of what is to come and what we would have been doing under normal circumstances.

 This week our MD, Jen Bernard was due to be in London with our team to fit out a brand new development for Audley Villages. Nightingale Place in Clapham comprises 94 luxury apartments and penthouses overlooking Clapham Common and is the first central London development for Audley.

 The brief for this project was to create a unique hospitality interior for the Audley Club at the heart of the village, housing the restaurant, library, bar bistro, cinema and health club. Many of Audley’s villages are situated within the grounds of a heritage building, utilising the main house for the Audley Club. This allows us to draw upon the unique history of each building for design inspiration to encapsulate the timeless Audley signature style. As Nightingale Place is an entirely new and urban development, inspiration has been taken from the adjacent Clapham Common, London and popular culture. We’ve mixed classic and contemporary to create a truly unique interior, appealing to both Audley owners and visitors.

 Audley Villages announced the completion of construction at the beginning of April and it’s been very exciting to see the finished bar to compare with the CGI’s we developed when designing the space. The carefully selected FF&E for the area will bring this already stunning interior to life.

 “We first started working on the designs for Nightingale Place back in 2018 so it is disappointing not to be fitting out on schedule,” commented Jen. “We’re in regular contact with Audley Villages and our professional partners to keep the communication going as we navigate our way through this difficult period. We know this project is going to be a showstopper when it is completed so watch this space!”
