Office design and installation company, asplanned, had to dance to a different tune when a client decided to incorporate a 140 year old organ in to their new headquarters.
Dundee integrated marketing agency, Avian Communications, called in asplanned to space plan and manage their move to the former Congregational Church in Broughty Ferry.
Avian originally planned to remove the 30ft high organ in the centre of the building but when they couldn’t find a suitable home for the ecclesiastical instrument opted to use it as a feature in their studio space.
Avian’s managing director, George Gall, explained: “We think the organ dates back to when the church was built in 1864 so it’s more than 140 years old. Originally the space planning didn’t include keeping the structure but when we couldn’t find a suitable home for it, we warmed to the idea of retaining it as a feature, minus the keyboards.
