Our project with Surrey Nanosystems involved a major industrial fitout of a newly built warehouse in Newhaven, Sussex. Surrey Nanosystems are pioneers in Vantablack coating technology for applications such as space technology and astronomy. The depth and absoluteness of the black coating can only be appreciated in the flesh – the ceiling tiles above the reception desk were applied with the specialist finish as a working example for visitors to admire when walking through the building.
A mezzanine was installed in the empty warehouse along with fully partitioned building spaces including tea points, washrooms, meeting rooms and a boardroom. Fitout works were also provided to the warehouse itself, including specialist power and lighting for high tech equipment. This space was one of subtle design elements as its main function is a workshop, so the design were purpose fully kept bright, uncomplicated, and minimalist, with very few distractions to keep on the task at hand.
