As always it has been a pleasure working with the K2 team on this project. Their great designs, attention to detail and professionalism have delivered an outstanding office for our team and clients once again.
Platinum Equity Design and Build
Platinum Equity are one of the World’s leading private equity firms at one time the largest privately owned company in the World with $36 Billion in diversified assets. They specialise in alternative investment strategies and leveraged buyouts.
Having already hired K2 for the last office on Bruton Street, Tom Gore – who also owns the Detroit Pistons NBA team – once again turned to K2 to design and build their new Mayfair office at 5 Hanover Square which was needed to house their expanding team.
The Brief: Achieving a Luxury Boutique Hotel Feel
The brief was to house their 40 London staff in a World-class facility with the feel of a luxury boutique hotel and to reflect the core values of the company and their clients. The office needed to include client-facing meeting rooms and a client club lounge with a concierge service and to offer clients a “home from home” when visiting. Finishes would reflect neutral, timeless tones. The design was a collaboration with their LA-based design team.
An Outstanding Office for Team and Clients
Platinum value having their staff in the office encouraging collaboration and impromptu meetings both internal and with clients and wanted a facility that encouraged their team to be in the office – return to the office is near 100%.
