Red Jacket has created a new office reception for ad agency Duckworth Finn Grubb Walters’ Soho headquarters in London. The building was ‘unspectacular’, according to Simon Jordan, Red Jacket’s head of marketing. The reception was completed over three months and to a tight budget.

A highlight of the retail concept is a “trial space” resembling a basketball court, which features the brand’s manifesto in Arabic.
