Charles Stanley

Originate recently designed the new corporate office headquarters for the Charles Stanley Group. Charles Stanley is a leading UK-based investment management company. The company was established in 1792, and is one of the oldest firms listed on the London Stock Exchange. The company is rationalising its business and has recently rebranded with a new logo, corporate colours and internal structures.

Originate were involved early so that the new ethos could be incorporated into the new fit out being designed over two floors at 55 Bishopsgate, London. The new ‘kaleidoscope’ logo and colours can be used in a variety of ways. It became an important part of the design aesthetic and ‘look and feel’ of the new interiors. We designed break out areas on each floor with soft furnishings. The new staff cafeteria became a major part of the redesign, with many areas for informal working and meeting. We located meeting rooms adjacent to the cafeteria. These rooms can all be opened up to provide space for company ‘town hall’ meetings.
