Two major London advertising agencies are working with designers to create new office space, and one more is to look for an interior design consultancy.
D’Arcy Masius Benton and Bowles will have new headquarters in South Kensington by October, with interiors designed by Marshall Cummings Marsh. The consultancy has been working with the agency for four years. “We considered Canary Wharf, The Ark and Hays Galleria before choosing this site,” says a DMB&B spokesman.
Designer Victoria Manser is refurbishing Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper’s Covent Garden premises, focusing on the reception and conference rooms.
Bartle Bogle Hegarty plans to search for a consultancy to design interiors for its new offices, still in Soho, as part of its expansion project. “We can’t brief any designers until we decide how we want the space to be,” says BBH group finance director Nigel Maile. An appointment is expected in a month.
And Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe is moving from one central London site to another at the end of this month. It was unable to comment as DW went to press on whether it will be approaching designers .
