Working with specialist retail designers Sheridan, AOC helped develop a new brand for Ethos and as project managers and Principle Contractor have undertaken a high end design and build project in the centre of the Grade 2 Listed Old Spitalfields Market in Shoreditch, London. We have also been in the unusual position as investors in this scheme resulting from a strong working relationship with the Client therefore working within a framework agreement on a negotiated basis.

The 1st floor site with mezzanine balcony involved the creation of Hot Yoga and TRX training facilities as well as a retail unit and bar servery. We improved the design scheme from the first prototype in Cambridge offering high end finishes and the technical services required for this specialist facility. High quality shower facilities feature strongly in this scheme with bespoke glass and reclaimed timber finishes, bespoke lockers and joinery features.

The logistics planning was essential, working closely with the Landlord management team in the market and communicating with planning and listed building consultants throughout. The market is a vibrant 24/7 location with environmental impact issues needed to be controlled on a daily basis.

This was an exciting scheme and is planned be the first of several proposed London facilities that we will develop for Ethos.
