Behind the Scenes at Acton Gardens’ Concierge Area

By Laura Parker / Behind the Scenes , Concierge Design / 07th November 2018

Our luxurious concierge area for Countryside and L&Q’s Acton Gardens development is in the process of being finished, having been designed in-house at Focus Experiential.

In this blog post, we’re going to take a look through the sketches and plans with interior designer Jodie and uncover what inspired this grand concierge.


The scheme was an extension of the marketing suite we designed for Acton Gardens previously, using marble to create an upmarket feel, combined with warm woods to create a welcoming contrast. On trend palm leaf print combined with rich golds inspired this space. Gold and black metallic elements add another dimension to the space combined with soft velvet fabrics to soften the area.

The main feature of the space was a drop in ceiling raft to break up the 6 meter interior ceiling height. The angled raft was designed to run inline with the angled flooring change.

The raft incorporated grey slats running into the space & down the wall at varying heights, with recessed LEDs fitted into the voided areas the raft creates a lovely soft light across the back half of the space.

Additional lighting comprised of 2 gold multi arm chandeliers which fill the space with light from the 6 vintage bulbs on each light. The angled desk runs inline with the flooring change & is finished in marble to blend in with the marble floor tiles. Gold letterboxes with black framework are a great feature of the space.

We can’t wait to see this space come to life, so keep an eye on our website and socials for the full case study soon! In the meantime, why not check out the corresponding marketing suite here.
