CTA were engaged by CBRE Global Investors to transform the previously cold, stark, and tired lobby of South Wharf Tower, into an inspiring series of spaces for tenants to gather and meet.

Working with an economical budget, the lobby was curated into a series of three interconnected experiences.  A series of fretwork pavilions were introduced into the main daylit lobby space, creating intimacy within the previously cold, glazed space.  In counterpoint, a moody setting within the adjacent ante-space, provides a more introspective and calming mood, which leads onto the diaphanous timber wrapped lift lobby. 

As a sequence, the spaces provide a sensory threshold to the building, offering tenants uplifting moments of engagement and repose.
