Having recently commissioned Oliver Knowles to produce some views of Brentford for us we are now very pleased to have the amazing pictures hanging on our office wall. In time, all images will be produced into postcards which will be delivered throughout Brentford but in the meantime please do call in to take a look.
Brentford Christmas Cards
As in recent years we have a selection of local scenes perfect for sending as Christmas Cards. A selection of ten winter photographs which make perfect Christmas Cards. These are available to purchase in the office £3.00 per pack or two for £5.00.
Market Building Success
We were delighted to be appointed the local Estate Agent for Verve Properties Ltd. Working alongside Hamptons International we are can announce that all of apartments are now under offer with many buyers having already moved in. The Market Building, a converted office block was converted to provide 44 apartments in the heart of Brentford was received with great excitement. The development with a shared clubroom, cinema and central courtyard was launched in April whilst still very much a building site and we were delighted to be involved with this new emerging community.
Quilliam Commissions Art
Quilliam recently commissioned artist Oliver Knowles to design a series of distinctive images of Brentford.
Oliver studied at Southampton Solent University gaining a BA Hons degree within Fine art. The degree allowed Oliver to become an artist in residency at the university which included a showing of work which was later purchased by the university to be part of their collection.
Inspired by travel posters of the mid-20th century, Oliver loves the use of flat colour and the limited colour palettes they used which encapsulated the sense of wonder and spectacle that the age of travel had to offer.
Oliver tells us “’The Brilliant Brentford’ series of posters were inspired by the work of Frank Newbould and Tom Purvis but also by the vibrant history Brentford has to offer. The most enjoyable part of the project has been capturing the architecture in an atmospheric way and also getting to know about the area as I hadn’t been to Brentford before. The people at Quilliam took me around the various places and you could tell that their passion for Brentford was there which is what I wanted to capture within the work.”
The framed prints are hanging proudly in our newly refurbished office. Please do call in.
Our plan is to create limited edition postcards so do keep an eye out on your door mat!
Full size images are available to purchase framed, gift wrapped with a greetings card for £200
Quilliam Gets a Refurb
Post Brexit we have seen a slow-down of the property market. We took advantage of this quieter time and seized the opportunity to refurbish the office with an industrial boutique theme with a few fun pieces thrown into the mix. Five weeks of dust later and everyone’s nerves on edge the office was finally finished. We are still waiting for a few more pieces to finish the look but in the meantime do pop in for a coffee and have a look around.
