We extended this mid-terrace shopfront on Battersea Park road in London to create a new showroom & design studio for Ecovia.
The client was keen to pitch their brand as a lifestyle choice thereby differentiating themselves from other glazing suppliers.
“The vision of the VO design team to see from our wreck of a shell what could one day be a sublime example of architecture still astounds me today.”
Our challenge was to integrate their broad product range, from Exterior glazing to interior doors and joinery into the space in a seamless manner without losing a sense of continuity within the space.
We defined the space by the activities in Ecovia’s workflow, from arrival and presentation through to design development and delivery.
Upon arrival, one sits in the lounge sipping a cup of tea, noticing how well the triple glazing buffers the noise of the busy street.
The showroom to the front is united by a metal screen that peels away from the wall to define a new elevation. The blackened steel monoliths reinforce this new edge.
Meanwhile, a design discussion takes place in the meeting room, revealed & reflected through the subtle tints of the reflective glass.
Step through to the rear, drawn to the large glazed sliding panels and the verdant green wall. A calm well-lit space, where the working hub of Ecovia resides.
“I can’t believe what they have transformed our space into, I keep discovering new and beautiful details even after a year of being in the space.”

I can’t recommend the VO team highly enough, a true team of artists.”
