Horton House Refurbishment Completes

Flexible Business Interiors is pleased to unveil its latest project completion at Horton House in Liverpool.

Owned by Ashtrom Properties, the grade II listed building sits at the heart of the City’s Exchange Flags development and has undergone a significant refurbishment to create a striking new reception area and business lounge, as well as bookable meeting rooms and café space.

With tenants including Brabners LLP and Capgemini, Horton House is bursting with elegant, original architecture dating back to 1940’s. On the ground floor, this has been now been complemented with a sophisticated arrival space featuring a bespoke walnut reception desk and blue colour palette inspired by the site’s history and the Battle of the Atlantic. Formal meeting spaces feature crittle glazed partitions and doors, as well as sleek, timeless furniture and a variety of planting, while the on-site café provides a vibrant heart space and social gathering spot for occupiers and visitors alike.

Delivered in a phased approach in order to minimise disruption, FBI completed the project within 20 weeks.

Guy Lewinsohn, CEO at Ashtrom Properties UK, added: “Our vision for Horton House was to go a step further than just providing exceptional office accommodation, we wanted our tenants to have the option to venture out of their private space and make use of a range of high-quality, hospitality led shared areas. Bringing people together in this way can be hugely valuable for productivity, collaboration and mental wellbeing, and goes a long way to creating that much sought after community feel. 

“The professional team behind the transformation of Horton House has gone above and beyond to deliver fantastic environments that sit perfectly within this legacy building. Everything has been executed to the highest standard and has left our occupiers with a variety of flexible, modern workspaces available to them outside of their traditional office space, as well as a memorable arrival experience for visitors.”

Stephen Clarke, director at Flexible Business Interiors, said: “As a business we are seeing increasing numbers of projects from our client base looking to further the appeal of multi-let commercial properties, and this latest completion at Horton House is a great example.

“We are extremely pleased with the finished result at Horton House and to have worked alongside an excellent team of sub-contractors and consultants who have all worked tirelessly to meet our collective goals.”

Incognito designed the scheme and In4m Property Consultants acted as project managers.
