Working with global law firms and accountancy firms, multinational corporations, financial institutions, fund managers, high net worth individuals and family offices, Intertrust delivers high-quality corporate, fund, capital market and private wealth services to its clients.

The Landlord’s plans for the building Intertrust previously occupied together with an approaching lease expiry gave them the opportunity to relocate to a 10,000sqft  space in 1 Bartholomew Lane in the heart of the financial district and immediately neighbouring the Bank of England.

Following a competitive tender, NHQ were selected as Intertrust’s design and project management partner for the relocation project.


NHQ partnered with Intertrust while the search for a new office was ongoing, ensuring that spaces under consideration were right-sized for Intertrust’s workspace operating model and fit-for-purpose from a technical perspective. The new space had to be a careful representation of the firm’s bold and professional brand as well as consolidating a culture where quality, personal service and attention-to-detail matters. The design concept also had to function as a blueprint which could be implemented across the firm’s other global locations in the future.


The NHQ design team worked closely with Intertrust’s senior management to ensure that the departmental adjacencies would function efficiently and that meeting and break-out facilities were positioned to ensure that teams could group and re-group as required by the demands of their clients. The new space also incorporates a Client Experience Centre to allow clients to visit the space in comfort and to encourage free and flexible interaction with Intertrust’s staff. The finishes palette pairs the strong Intertrust brand colours with crisp white and cool concrete tones. Accents of the brand colour have been used in the lighting and ceiling features, while in the Client Experience Centre we have chosen to use the brand ribbon graphics representing Intertrust as a whole rather than at a service line level. The breakout area is designed as a sanctuary away from the office and the global design blueprint gives flexibility for each country to have a style of coffee shop suited to the location. In London we chose a Shoreditch style coffee shop featuring an eclectic mix of timber floors, a shaker style green kitchen, brass handles and white metro tiles with grey grout.


Intertrust’s new office is a welcoming, urban tech-hub reflective of a forward-looking global business providing multiple services across a range of international markets.
