10-4 Pentonville Road
Signbox has just completed a creative contract at 10-4 Pentonville Road in Islington, London. Another landmark development for Derwent London PLC, Signbox were recommended for the project by AHMM architects having successfully completed most of the internal and external signage for Derwent’s award winning Angel Building, which is directly opposite 10-4 Pentonville Road.
The recently completed regeneration of 10-4 Pentonville Road has unified the façade of two former 1980s buildings to create 55,000 sq ft of office space. Designed by architects Stiff + Trevillion, the buildings have two attractive canopied entrances which are supported by glistening Miesian stainless steel columns. The design has a distinct Scandinavian influence which includes Danish brick that extends into the reception foyer.
Signbox worked with designers - Everything In Between to create and manufacture fully bespoke internal and external signage that embraced directory signs, WC signage, floor level indicators and extensive promotional signage for the building’s marketing suite. The enormous size of the temporary floor level indicators, both free standing and ceiling suspended, leant an imposing feature to the Cat A fit out.
Widely regarded as one of London’s most innovative office regenerators and investors, Derwent London is the multiple award-winning FTSE 250 listed property developer with an investment portfolio of 5.3 million sq ft valued at £2.7 billion. Speaking of Signbox’s work at 10-4 Pentonville Road, Derwent London’s Simon Silver, said, “Signbox did a fantastic job at 10-4 Pentonville Road. We were really pleased with the high quality design and finish of the signage and the speedy, efficient service they gave us”.
Mark Bartlett, Managing Director of Signbox Ltd, said, “This contract to create internal and external signage at 10-4 Pentonville Road followed our successful work at Derwent London’s highly acclaimed Angel Building development in EC1, where we completed all the building’s base signage and subsequently won the complete signage contracts for two of the building’s major tenants. It is a pleasure to work with Derwent London and needless to say we are delighted to have gained the trust and confidence of such a highly successful and universally admired property developer.”
