Providers of world class investment solutions and retirement expertise to institutions, individuals and their advisers, Fidelity International recently moved to newly refurbished, state-of-the-art offices located at 4 Cannon Street. As part of the fit-out, partitioning experts Style was contracted to deliver flexible space to the showcase meeting and training areas, installing four fully automatic Skyfold moveable walls finished in a stunning Kvadrat Floyd fabric.
Housed discreetly in the ceiling cavity, the Skyfold units take up zero floor space when not required, descending gracefully at the touch of the button to quickly sub-divide an area. With impressive 59dB Rw acoustic integrity, meetings and events can run concurrently, entirely undisturbed on either side of the wall. Over the last 20 years, Fidelity International has installed nearly 50 Skyfold walls in their offices across the globe, reflecting the exceptional performance and reliability of this unique partitioning solution.
A truly outstanding development that is targeting WELL Gold Certification and BREEAM Excellent accreditation, 4 Cannon Street is situated directly opposite St Paul’s Cathedral and provides 108,000 sq ft of high-end, sustainable office space. Working with Aedas architects and Mace Interiors, Style recommended Skyfold moveable walls as the space-dividing solution that never fails to impress.
“Skyfold walls deliver the wow factor to prestigious offices such as these, creating a real showcase for Fidelity International’s business,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, which has been the exclusive UK partner to Skyfold for over a decade, when the operable wall was first launched in the UK.
“The acoustics on the Skyfold Classic 60 walls installed at Fidelity’s new offices are simply breath-taking, the ease by which they lower and rise make it incredibly quick and easy to change the use of the facilities in-between meetings, and this fabric finish perfectly complements the interior design of these inspiring London offices.
Such is the adaptability of the Skyfold moveable wall solution, Style has witnessed soaring demand across multiple sectors including corporate, education, hospitality, healthcare and religion.
