As part of the design, the client requested a used jet fuselage to be hung from the ceiling. Due to the building being a historic structure, this wasn’t easy as the used fuselage was deemed too large to bring into the building. Instead, the designers were able to have a new fuselage built from within the office.

Underneath the impressive fuselage is a glass enclosed room with kitchen facilities.

Heading upstairs, you’re able to enter the conference room that’s hidden within the fuselage.

The fuselage also provides access to a bridge that connects the conference room with two glass enclosed offices at the other end.
