The UK’s largest commercial auction house has been fully refurbished to create an exclusive showroom for its new luxury assets division.
CPMG architects designed the interiors on behalf of John Pye Auctions to create a luxurious space for showcasing jewellery, watches, art and unique high-net worth goods such as former Formula1 cars.
An impressive Italian marble floor reception with brass detail incorporating the John Pye logo on the floor and ceiling greets visitors, while a selection of flexible display cases and cabinets are individually illuminated with Tom Dixon pendant lights.
Situated above Alexanda McQueen, the John Pye Luxury Assets showroom comprises the whole of the building’s second floor providing office space for growing business divisions within the firm.
Adam Pye, managing director for John Pye Auctions said the new salesroom was the start of a new era for the auctioneers. “The quality of the interiors complements our new luxury assets division and our brand perfectly. Attention to detail throughout portrays the right amount of contemporary fittings and traditional design, central to our brand.
“The new salesroom on Bond Street represents an exciting time for John Pye. In the last 48 years we’ve grown from one salesroom in Nottingham to twenty four across the country as far as Edinburgh and now with a strong presence in London to meet the needs of our growing overseas customer base.”
Chris White, project director for CPMG architects said this was just one great example of interiors that the team had delivered in recent months.
“The interior design aspect of our business continues to grow and this is just one example of the work which we have completed for clients in London,” he said.
“Bespoke furniture, electro-chromatic glazed partitions and a reclaimed Georgian door are just some of the unique features which makes the space flexible to use and create private areas, when required.
“More contemporary office space was also introduced to support the expanding property and business assets divisions of the business.”
