Lawrence Stephens Art Gallery

As part of a recent refurbishment and refreshment to our client and office space, we are delighted to have collaborated with international art agency Artiq, supporting local artists and brightening up our space with some fantastic artwork.

With the recent growth and expansion of Lawrence Stephens, the refurbishment of our Farringdon office marks an exciting new development for the firm and displays a renewed commitment to employees, clients and company culture. It also represents an opportunity to refresh the space itself and bring vibrancy and dynamism into our workspace. With this collection curated by Artiq, each piece invites creativity and collaboration, and its focus on championing local artists, diverse cultures and unique identities goes hand in hand with our mantra – “we’re a people business.”
