Ninety One is the €139 billion asset management company, previously known as Investec Asset Management prior to a demerger in 2020. 

At Ninety One’s offices on Gresham Street, in the heart of London’s business district, Style worked with HLW architects and main contractor Overbury to create adaptable and agile office space.

On the ground floor Style installed 3 moveable wall systems offering the freedom to create 2 individual meeting rooms, or 1 large meeting area, off the main reception. 

An ‘outer’ Dorma Huppe Variflex semi-automatic operable wall formed a corridor overlooking the reception - finished in Fluted Timber veneer to match the surrounding joinery. 

A second ‘outer’ wall on the south flank overlooking the lounge was a Dorma Huppe Variflex glass moveable wall which maximised the light flooding into the space while maintaining high acoustic separation. 

The cross wall, used to sub-divide the space into the 2 meeting rooms, was a Dorma Huppe Variflex semi-automatic moveable wall offering impressive 59dB acoustic integrity.

This was designed with a Kvadrat Maharam Merit fabric finish that looked truly stunning in this impressive, high end office environment.

“This installation not only offered tremendous levels of flexibility,” said Michael Porter, Style’s sales director for the South, “it also brought style and panache to a beautifully designed, chic office building.

“All three systems can be stored away to create a large events’ space incorporating the lounge at the south of the ground floor reception.

“It’s yet another example of how you can cleverly utilise space to adapt to day-to-day requirements, while also adding to the interior design of the room. 

“In addition, the exceptional 59dB acoustic rating means that once the wall is in place, meetings can take place either side undisturbed and in privacy.”

Style is the exclusive UK partner to Dorma Huppe, Skyfold and SWG.
