Washroom Washroom delivers a colourful change in the heart of London

  • 22 Mar 2019

Washroom designer, manufacturer and installer, Washroom Washroom has created a bright and colourful new changing area as part of an office refurbishment project in the heart of London.

Devonshire Square is a five-acre campus that can be found between the City and Shoreditch, offering an exciting, architecturally varied campus with 630,000 sq ft of office space, shops, homes, restaurants and bars. 

Washroom recently worked alongside Collins Construction and John Robertson architects as part of a refurbishment project at Devonshire Square which saw the team create a new cycle centre to cater for those who choose to walk or cycle into work.

Washroom’s Forza solid grade laminate lockers were chosen for the new changing area and bike storage facility features, with key operated locks to provide a secure storage solution for office workers. The Forza range promises exceptional strength and durability, having been manufactured from hardwearing 12mm solid grade laminate doors and aluminium bodies with solid laminate shelves and ventilation holes.

Washroom utilised a range of high-pressure laminate colours from Sonae for the locker doors to create the distinctive eye-catching design. ‘Pearl White’ was used for the majority of the lockers with a range of three accent colours; ‘Blue Paradiso’; ‘Jade’ and ‘Lemon Green’ picked out against the white in evenly spaced vertical stripes.

The changing area and combined changing and shower cubicles also features Washroom’s freestanding island Legato bench units manufactured with solid grade laminate slats and backrest in the same ‘Pearl White’ shade from Sonae. The Legato benches comprise an aluminium support construction with profiled seating options and a complementary hook rail. The backrest on the island unit is generally manufactured from the same material as the seat. 

In addition, the Washroom team designed and installed its Arpeggio Corian trough-style vanity units within the changing area. Manufactured in the crisp ‘Designer White’ colour with inset square sink areas and integrated waste bins and wall-mounted taps, the vanity units fit seamlessly with the sleek changing area design.

Trevor Bowers, director at Washroom Washroom comments on the project: “Providing shower and changing areas is becoming increasingly important for offices and is something we’ve seen an increase in over recent years. This project is an excellent example of how colour can be used to create a unique space. Just a small pop of colour against the white lockers, benching, Corian vanities and tiling is very effective.”
