A central London office building, revamped to turn a historic single-business office into several separate spaces, now sports a modern face-lift designed to appeal to prospective customers. Architects from Sturgis Associates LLP, London, England, installed private balconies on the 33 Kingsway building with backlit, color-changing fabric ceilings. The new look updates the exterior, draws attention to the building with color and adds an outdoor amenity that urban office dwellers appreciate.

To ensure the fabric panels diffuse the light from color-changing LEDs, Fabric Architecture Ltd. tested different materials before recommending Silicone Glass Weave (SGW) fabric. The colorful light show gives the historic building a contemporary flair.
