lowRISC EWD provided various test fit options to make sure the office would allow for future expansion. Break-out spaces and a vibrant conference room were key for the client to reflect their brand and to support their functional working needs. We implemented a split open plan office with sit-to-stand desking on the upper floors – a great way to aid wellbeing at work – as well as a new colourful kitchen with high-spec appliances. Our human-centric design approach incorporated biophilic design principles – adding plants, natural colours and emphasising access to natural light. EWD were engaged in a Design and Build role, managing the design, construction and supply and install of all FF&E.
The University of Cambridge, St John’s College, New Court Completed in 1831 to the designs of Thomas Rickman and Henry Hutchinson, the style of the court is gothic. It remains one of the most iconic and loved buildings of the Cambridge colleges. Grade 1 listed, it required careful strategy and design in order to upgrade and refurbish it. Our extensive involvement with the interior refurbishments included upgrading Fellows rooms with new heating, lighting and ensuites in the constrained octagonal turrets, new lighting throughout, refurbished gyp rooms, DDA room and VIP guest rooms. We custom designed all the furniture in oak and joinery throughout and sourced antiques.
The University of Cambridge, Girton College Eve Waldron Design was brought in to source and supply all the furniture and lighting to the recently refurbished café and Porters Lodge. We selected furniture which is robust, easy to clean and maintain and which appeals to a variety of users. The furniture worked to support function, and not only looks good but creates an engaging environment that is conducive to collaboration, concentration and relaxation.
Tring Park School for the Performing Arts A new building was commissioned by architects Burrell Foley Fischer, and Eve Waldron Design was selected to provide interior design input and to supply and install all the new furniture and window treatments throughout. Furniture for the student accommodation was a bespoke design which was carefully detailed to provide as much storage as possible, be robust, long lasting and still fit within a tight budget. A selection of oak, white and grey finishes compliment the building. Chairs and soft furnishings in greens and blues were selected to relate to the wonderful views of the trees and countryside and to work well with the brass cladding. Internal paint schemes are restful and conducive to concentration and relaxation. Other areas of specialised furniture were also provided including drama storage and drama curtains, art cupboards and staff accommodation furniture.
Converted Church, Boulder, Colorado Positioned with spectacular views of the mountains – this house was a former Victorian church. We were appointed to undertake a full-service interior design project, this included the design of the bespoke kitchen, bespoke bathrooms and all joinery. The spectacular high ceilings offered challenges and opportunities for dramatic lighting.
St. Peter’s Street, Cambridge This project was the complete refurbishment and extension of a Victorian property in the centre of Cambridge. We fulfilled both an architectural and Interior design role, managing the project through all the RIBA stages to completion. It included a rear extension and a first floor extension as well as a conversion of the attic, and landscaping. Being in a conservation area and on a constrained site, it was challenging and rewarding!
