St Paul’s House
Building on the success of Regency Court, Urbanise was delighted to once again be chosen to bring Sedulo founder Paul Cheetham-Karcz’s vision to life – this time in Leeds. As always, with style, flare and creativity, we implemented his vision covering 13,000 sq ft in the 19th century Grade II listed St Paul’s House.
A blueprint for success
We were tasked with the design, specification and fit out to remodel the existing ground floor space. As with all Sedulo fit out projects, we installed an impressive central bar and seating area – this time with a Great Gatsby theme – called The Ambler Club. We also created a range of entrepreneur inspired meeting rooms, including the John Cadburys room, Fred Perry table tennis suite, Bill Gates meeting hub and the Bartfields tribute boardroom, paying homage to the previous directors of the Bartfields firm, acquired by Sedulo in 2018. We transformed the space, making it ideal for day-to-day work with a real focus on client entertaining and meetings in a comfortable and impressive setting.
St Paul’s House is perfectly situated next to the stunning Park Square, a leafy public park, in the centre of Leeds. Paul asked us if we could install booth seating in The Ambler Club that could rotate – facing both inwards for events and meetings and outwards to take advantage of the view, supporting staff wellbeing. We investigated this option but found there was no such product or system available, so we built, upholstered and installed custom booths, allowing for both scenarios.
As the building was operational during the works, exceptional planning and logistical management was required to ensure there was minimal disruption to other occupants and the building remained accessible.
Paul and the team are delighted with the results.
