plum guide

CCWS – from design to completion we are with you every step of the way!


London-based Plum Guide are in the business of sourcing top-end residential accommodation for discerning guests in London and other European capitals—the best places to stay in a city. Accepting just one percent of all the homes they view, they’re a seriously high end, style-conscious company. So they obviously needed an office with the same mark of quality. Let’s call it a “plum” base to showcase their brand. 


We already knew Joe Adams, Plum Guide’s CFO, well, having worked with him at Space Ape. We love it when a client remembers us and brings us along to do more great work for their new company—it means we must be doing something right! Joe put us in touch with Zoe Mallet, the Office Manager at Plum Guide. The brief? To bust Plum out of boring and brainstorm some designs to fit their inspirational online brand.


It soon became clear that Plum Guide, a young and dynamic business, were expanding like crazy. They needed a design to support their growth, maximise collaboration, and be flexible enough to support more people and workflows through the high-growth period.

Zoe loved our ideas for large open collaborative staff areas with bench-style desks, glass writing walls and productivity-boosting plants everywhere. She also loved our concept for a large kitchen breakout area with sofas, reclaimed farmhouse-style kitchen tables, a reclaimed-scaffolding breakfast bar and quiet phone pods. It’s a look that ticks all the boxes—urban, bold, flexible and integrated.

And anytime a client gives the go-ahead for our trademark recycled-scaffolding tiered bleacher seats with drop-down cinema screen for town-hall meetings, staff gatherings and—of course—Movie Nights, you just know the end result is going to be amazing!


For meetings, we created a boardroom with cool vintage-style lights alongside smaller meeting pods with striking black-framed windows and exposed services to build on the warehouse style. But it’s the lack of visible tech that makes this space truly special. The Plum Guide London office has all the ingredients of a hi-tech, fully integrated office, but it’s almost completely cable free, operating VOIP over WiFi.

The result is an immensely versatile and sophisticated space that’s all incredibly discrete, with tech requirements barely interfering at all with the pared-back, warehouse vibe. We are so honoured to have been involved in shaping Plum Guides’ new work environment. And to pull it all off against the odds. Oh, did we mention the whole thing was completed just five weeks from signing the lease?!
