Matteo Bianchi Studio was appointed by Net Lettings, an award-winning letting agency located in Whitechapel, to create an innovative and stylish interior that wouldn’t be expected or commonly identified as an estate agency. As the UK now begins to ease out of lockdown, Net Lettings is proud to welcome its customers to experience Matteo Bianchi Studio’s elegant and inviting design.
In the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic, letting agents in particular have had to adapt to a new way of working to ensure the property market kept moving and remained open for business. Net Lettings proved its resilience with the adoption of new sophisticated technologies and innovative processes, alongside a complete overhaul of their office space.
Responding to the brief, ‘Urban Decadence’, Matteo Bianchi Studio has successfully reimagined the future of estate agents, creating something truly special that not only works for the employees of Net Lettings, but its customers, the local community, and visitors to the area too.
At first glance, from the exterior, it would be hard to identify the use of the space. Dark hues of blues and greens fill the agency walls which are complemented by comforting and stylish office furniture. Matteo Bianchi Studio has cleverly incorporated bright accents throughout the space, from the brass keys hanging at the front desk, to the slick Buster + Punch T-bar door handles on cupboards and light switches to create a feeling of luxury and curiosity.
A reception desk was installed at the front of the street level office that faces a chequered emerald green wall that spills into the floor. This top space also houses a selection of bespoke circular desks by Barel for employees and potential tenants to sit at while facing the feature wall at the back made of a striking Cole & Son wallpaper, lined with green velvet curtains.
Adorned with a selection of memorabilia and ornaments, a bespoke dimly lit built-in bookshelf gives further interest to the office. A bar trolley sits on the first floor contributing to the extraordinary atmosphere and shining pendant lights by Il Fanale hang from the ceiling enclosing the client area.
There are four rooms on the lower ground floor: a kitchen, a neon lit bathroom, a meeting table by Calligaris with a display tv and a director’s office. A wide staircase creates space and leads you down into the inviting navy floor. There are also a set of in-built cupboards, matching the upstairs, with Buster + Punch pull bars.
With a homely and comfortable atmosphere, Net Lettings now offers the perfect environment to suit the enjoyable and momentous experience of finding a home to let.
Matteo Bianchi, Founder and Director of Matteo Bianchi Studio said: “It has been truly rewarding to work with Net Lettings and have the freedom to create something that it is beautiful and unique, while at the same time working as a practical and inviting space for its customers and employees. We are extremely proud of the design which will stand-the-test-of-time and respond to ever-changing requirements as technology develops.” Commenting on the official reopening, Jag Sandhu of Net Lettings added: “Matteo Bianchi Studio has provided a first-class service from conception through to completion. We have all had to work within the boundaries and restrictions of lockdown and we are thrilled with the final result.”
