The Brief

Deliver a modern workplace design that was true to the St James’s Place Wealth Management brand.

The Solution

St James’s Place Wealth Management is a rapidly growing FTSE-100 wealth management business, with 23 offices located throughout the UK.

Following the successful design and fit out of the client’s Cardiff offices, we were asked to develop the workplace design for St James’s Place Wealth Management in Exeter.

The workplace scheme was to have a similar high-quality, luxurious feel to Cardiff, but with a lighter finish and different brand.

In partnership with furniture supplier Abbey Business Interiors, we fitted-out a space which encouraged productivity, team collaboration and flexibility. Working with the project team, and taking inspiration from the beautiful South Devon coastline, we designed an interior that would incorporate light timbers, with artwork to reference lighthouses and renowned coastal spots, which were pleasantly displayed throughout meeting rooms.

An impressive client facing reception area now demonstrates excellence at St James’s Place Wealth Management. A prestigious wave sign engraved with the client’s brand was also included into the reception area for a finely detailed executive look and feel.

Similar to the offices of St James’s Place Wealth Management in Cardiff and Rowan Dartington in Bristol, we delivered a spacious and collaborative teapoint area to support agile working, informal meetings and staff relaxation space.

There was also a series of bespoke works, including high-quality fretwork screens and dividers, to create effective zones throughout the workspace.

What the client had to say
Paramount took the time to understand our company values and provided us with a design which is sympathetic to our brand and heritage with a modern twist.
