The Ark office building – New Interior

Ralph Erskine’s iconic Ark office building, located along the A4 Westway in Hammersmith, is to have its first tenant in almost ten years.

The Interiors Group have been appointed by OpenTV, who provide convergent media solutions, to build their new office interiors at The Ark. OpenTV is headquartered in San Francisco, California, with offices worldwide.

They provide their customers with the highest quality technology, services and end-to-end solutions enabling intuitive and personalised viewing experiences for consumers of television content worldwide. The Interiors Group will build the new office interior for media company Open TV in eight weeks.

Along with CBRE Building Consultancy, The Interiors Group will take the concept and with further innovation, provide OpenTV a new landmark facility.

Squeezed between the A4 Westway and a railway cutting the building is intended to reference the biblical Ark with a boat-shape silhouette.
