Takenaka Architects

Cirus were appointed by Japanese project managers Takenaka Europe to fit out this prestigious Mackintosh flagship store in Mayfair, designed by the renowned Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall.

Our client required a very high level of quality to be delivered within a compact 12 week programme, with the added restrictions of limited working hours, minimal working space and storage on site, together with the added complication of road works outside the property. From an empty building shell each required component was site measured and precision manufactured to the highest standards. Finishes included a bespoke steel open riser staircase with glass landing balustrade, Japanese oak floors and ceilings, stainless steel feature light fittings, built in display cases with glazed doors and a spectacular bespoke circular glass display case that was constructed to give the project its individual and unique character each individual component was bespokely manufactured either in the UK, Japan or America and Cirus, as a registered importer, managed the logistics and installation of each part into the construction. Our clients were delighted with the service and high level of quality that was achieved for their new store and the members of our construction received personal thanks from Masamichi Katayama at the opening ceremony.
