Leaders - a prominent estate agency brand growing all the time through acquisitions and organic expansion - came to MPL Interiors looking for a concept office design that would help increase its market share and presence on the High Street. The Godalming branch- where the new concept look was trialled - falls within a conservation area, so there were restrictions on the outdoor signage and exterior lighting.
MPL Interiors used its experience with local councils to agree on a flat, unlit aluminium facia tray with vinyl text that found favour with the planners. Subsequently, MPL created a stand-out internal space that compensated for the lack of external lighting. The office space literally glows from within, with a combination of functional overhead lights, task lights, spotlights, feature lights and a large internally-lit Leaders logo, ensuring the office draws attention after dark.
MPL also made a feature of two structural columns inside the workplace that couldn’t be removed. We used the void in between the columns to display property details, using a cable and pocket display system for a novel yet useful facet.
