SKM Offices • Edinburgh

Space planning and fit-out of special areas to SKM Anthony Hunt’s new Edinburgh base at One Sixty Dundee Street.

The suite on the top floor of One Sixty enjoys panoramic views of Edinburgh’s skyline. The cluster of cellular accommodation is therefore located around the atrium allowing the mainly open plan office to enjoy good daylight and connect with the full height glazed external wall.

A sequence of social spaces on the principle circulation route in the office have been detailed with bespoke joinery and furniture items to a restrained palette of materials and colours.

Our previous experience of fast-track fit-out projects meant that an intensive five month programme from initial sketches to completion was successfully achieved.

SKM Offices • Newcastle

Having successfully completed the fit out of SKM Anthony Hunts’ Edinburgh office, SHS BURRIDGE ARCHITECTS were commissioned to design the fit-out of new premises for SKM at Cale Cross House in Newcastle.

Prominently located close to the Tyne bridge and river SKM’s suite occupies the entire 13th floor and enjoys panoramic views of the Newcastle skyline.

The existing 1960’s building with central core, narrow floor plates and low floor to ceiling presents interesting challenges for the demands of the 21st century office. No raised floor and a modest suspended ceiling supports the low energy approach of natural ventilation and good daylight. Open plan office accommodation follows the perimeter on 3 sides with reception and cellular meeting rooms located on the fourth, north side avoiding a need for additional cooling. The primary circulation forms an inner ring around the core and gives direct access to comms room, shower, storage wall and library. As with Dundee Street the bespoke joinery and furniture items are designed to a restrained palette of materials and colours.

The project was successfully delivered on time and budget in an intensive 3 month period from initial sketches to client occupation.
