Institute of Practitioners in Advertising

Institute of Practitioners in Advertising

London 1997

The Institute of Practitioners in Advertising inhabited a Grade I listed building. They wished to be seen as solid and responsible – but not old fashioned. Entrance into the building is now through a portal of polished plaster with sliding doors made from crushed aluminium drinks cans. A new meeting room allows the atmosphere to move from a blue ambient light for video presentations to a more focussed light for working. The lighting on the first floor stair landing uses stripped television tubes threaded together with neon and suspended on wires, designed in collaboration with JAM.
