We have been retained by the London studio of global architecture practice Perkins&Will since 2019. The London studio specialises in corporate design having created offices for some of the world’s largest firms, with experience across the life sciences, hospitality and tech sectors.
Our focus has been positioning the studio as corporate design experts within the global business and consumer media, raising the profile of its team and projects through a thought-leadership approach.
In 2020, recognising the historic opportunity to repurpose and redesign workspace post-pandemic, we launched a high impact media campaign discussing the future of the office that resulted in several high profile press and broadcast hits.
- Over 35 BD introductions made in the last 12 months
- Policy influence with five recommendations in various stages of policy
- Strategic support through M&A activities including the merger with Penoyre & Prasad
- Widespread high profile coverage as part of the ‘future of the office post-pandemic’ campaign including CNBC, Sky News, BBC and the Financial Times with an audience reach of 100m alone for this campaign
Steven Charlton, Principal and Managing Director, London said:
“Blackstock were hired two years ago and have shown not just an extensive knowledge of offices and interiors, but a broad-sweeping passion for architecture and the ability to help us strategise, grow and be more confident in telling our story.
“Aside from generating significant global business press, the team has taken a thought-leadership approach that has engaged major firms like Landsec, Stanhope and L&G and positioned us right at the forefront of our profession through a major report which put us in front of Government and alongside leading investors.
“The team is committed, honest, never afraid to speak their minds but above all, they are great fun to deal with and have a depth of knowledge about the market that offers us untold benefits in shaping our PR and research to deliver exceptional results. They support our internal team and work as one with them. Despite our corporate structure, their unconventional approach has yielded far more than we could have ever imagined.”
