Featured on the Designerati website

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography currently features on the Designerati website, the digital home and website for “Designer Magazine”.

The article is part of a new series featuring designers and architects speaking about future-proof design. The photographs are from a recent assignment for Tetris DB of the new Wise offices in the Tea Building in Shoreditch, London. Great interior design understands the end user’s requirements, respects the interior space, and produces an environment which is reflective of the brand. The offices have been designed as a flexible working environment with collaborative spaces that utilise a multitude of different options of furniture to enhance creativity.

The article looks at how furniture should not be an afterthought and that we should recognise its vital role as a key driver of a holistic sustainability approach that can extend and enhance the lifecycle of workplaces.

Front Cover of Interior Design Magazine

  • By Jonathan Banks

I am featured all over Interior Design Magazine this month, thanks to the good people at Armourcoat. In the March edition of Interior Designer Magazine my photography is on the front cover, the inside cover, there are three photos used in an article on page 19 and then another photo for a feature on page 45.

Interior Designer Magazine is Britain's longest established magazine for professional interior designers. It is the premier source of inspiration for the interior’s community, working with the very best creatives who are influencing and shaping the industry. The magazine presents project features, articles about the people behind the project, product news, and general ideas.

I photographed the Long Barn, East Sussex, showcasing the incredibly beautiful Clime plaster work by Armourcoat. Made from natural minerals with low embodied carbon, Clime plasters contain no cement or volatile organic compounds and are available in a wide range of natural colours.

Clime plasters create healthy interiors, with beautiful finishes in tune with nature and engaging traditional decorative skills.

A creative workspace with tech, humour and is also dog friendly

  • By Jonathan Banks

Once occupied by the Lipton Tea factory, the Tea Building was originally a block of early twentieth century warehouses that was revamped under plans drawn up by AHMM for developer Derwent London. The interior has been sympathetically refurbished, keeping many of the original features, to create a number of high-quality open spaces allowing companies to stamp their own distinctive mark on each unit.

Last year I photographed the new office space for the financial technology company, Wise. Fit-out specialist Tetris designed and built the London headquarters as a destination workplace that would attract and retain talent. The 49,000 sq ft of space covers three floors and has been designed to enable connections and communication between employees. There are traditional meeting rooms, “reflection spaces” and technology enhanced collaborative areas.

In my photography brief I was asked to capture how the design respected the original building and features whilst embracing the requirements of a creative financial technology company. The photography was to show how the headquarters has been designed as a flexible working environment with creative workspaces, a lecture theatre, a garden and terrace, and a variety of break out areas.

Great interior design understands the end user’s requirements, respects the interior space, and produces an environment which is reflective of the brand. The Wise Headquarters at the Tea Building brews up it’s unique creative workspace with a blend of humour (with some of the signage), wellness (in the biophilia) and comfort (in the various options for seating from hammocks to hanging chairs) … oh and it is also a dog friendly office.
