A challenging project in the Grade II listed Polish Embassy in London so impressed the ambassador that the refurbished rooms are now used regularly to host guests and hold press events.
The refurbishment centred on the Ambassador’s prestige office and adjacent rooms, The representative of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, said: “We were very impressed by Revo’s professional approach which gave us complete confidence in their ability to complete this complex refurbishment.”
She added: “Other companies were reluctant to take on the more difficult aspects, such as furniture upholstering and refurbishing rooms in a listed building.”
Revo discussed the client’s design requirements and offered ideas that would complement the grand-surroundings. It was important in such a busy environment to run a well managed project. “We only had to deal with Revo, who acted on our behalf and in our interests, rather than with each of the individual contractors used to do the work,” said the client.
First, all the antique furniture, paintings and sculptures were carefully removed and stored while the large curtains were taken away for cleaning. Attention to detail was important. This included sourcing a smaller-sized stainless steel yacht basin to maximise space in the kitchenette.
