Devon House - St Katherine Docks
A Refurbished London Workplace.
Located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, adjacent to Tower Bridge in the prominent position looking over the River Thames is Devon House at St Katherine Docks. Originally built back in 1989 forming part of a historic redevelopment by an Act of Parliament, Devon House sits surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars with enviable direct transport links close by, including transport by boat.
Devon House underwent a full refurbishment internally and externally that included a brand-new reception space and terrace with prime views over River Thames. The new reception area encapsulates that of a social space almost mimicking a coffee house with a relaxed atmosphere. A refurbishment by Blackstone, demanded distinctive design features including warm brown with gold tones standing out in this project which are symbolic to Blackstone’s previous refurbishments.
Adaptable Security for Flexibility.
Along with the Type One Tourniket installation, it was understood from the beginning that Devon House would be designed with adaptability and growth in mind. We were aware of the design capacity of the building from very early on from Collins Construction who were the contractors on the project. The building capacity helped to dictate the number of lanes needed. We also had to consider DDA access which lead to a wide lane set up on the east and west side of the reception area. A wide lane configuration would allow disabled users to enter/exit through a similar type of turnstile.
