AMV.BBDO Offices, London
Fletcher Priest Architects
Fletcher Priest do rather a lot of offices for ad agencies. AMV.BBDO are the largest and one of the most creative, having given your television screen the tornado-surviving Volvo, and your tube waits the Economist. But their reception eschews the literary and narrative (unless you include the Times newspaper) for a calm and controlled space which reflects their carefully crafted and humanist view of what advertising should be. It doubles as a caf´┐Ż for the 300 staff working in 6,300 sq m office space.
