Black Kite's award-winning visual effects and design studio is driven by talent, creative freedom, and technology. Their community is composed of a collective of creatives who come together to make artistic content, so their space needs to meet different specific needs like for their production and visual effects suites - where they can be closed off from sound or lighting conditions during production, editing, and colour - or work together when they need to collaborate.

Designing the massive heritage workspace, Bureau de Change curated a series of intersecting and carved-out spaces, resembling boilers and kilns linked to the site's industrial past. The arrangement creates a functional and social workplace with varying degrees of privacy where people can seamlessly shift to the area best suited to their work. The communal stainless-steel kitchen is surrounded by a curved bar made from recycled solid surface. The hardwearing, seamless smooth dark green surfaces complement the stainless and painted timber surfaces. Above, Durat is used on kitchen shelves in a contrasting yellow RAL Classic colour.
