Galloways’ Estate Agents office by IYA Studio, London

January 24th, 2014 by retail design blog

Galloway’s Estate Agents approached us last year to review their brand and office in West Norwood. With over 25 years in the business, the time had come for a refresh: one that enhanced their reputation and repositioned the brand with new market appeal. With a fashion based interior project happening in Paris at the same, this was a great opportunity for us to get stuck into two diverse projects simultaneously.

The challenge was to bring a fresh approach to the estate agent experience, one that feels modern, clean and thoughtfully designed. As a multidisciplinary studio working across a range of projects, we often pull inspiration from our other creative outputs. Elements of graphics design inspired the feature wall in the office space, which also compliments the existing grid ceiling. We loved the idea of two-dimensional surfaces leading into three-dimensional one’s, where shapes on the wall lead into objects and furniture, allowing visual play and an eye-catching feature.

The colour palette references the various front doors of the neighbourhood, and modern and mid century furniture is used throughout. From the space to the furnishing, this project celebrates the client’s passion for well-crafted design, as well as the professional and dynamic service that Galloway’s offer.
