consultancy services covering Audiovisual,
Multimedia, Acoustics and IT. We work closely with
end clients, architects and design agencies in the
seamless integration of these within the required fit

requirements, covering needs analysis, design,
specification and commissioning services, or a mix
and match of those specific elements which the
particular project requires.
We follow the RIBA (Royal Institute of British
Architects) design stages and are well versed in the
required project design approach. Most importantly,
we understand all these elements and the specific
way they interact enabling us to work with other key
partners on this basis, from architects and lighting
designers through to main contractors, providing
technical assurance throughout the process
packaged to suit your particular needs.

in enabling our clients to work smarter,

WE CREATE AWARD WINNING
What We Do
The modern corporate working environment is
evolving to reflect the changes in the way individuals
allowed some companies to implement hot-desking
and agile working environments, often reducing the
overall desk count and space requirements. Meeting
and huddle spaces have also evolved, flexible rooms
which allow content from laptops or other portable
devices are common, allowing collaborative working,
annotation and sharing of documents and content
through traditional or interactive interface.
Whilst some companies still opt for traditional video
conferencing suites, often there is an need to enable
conferencing through modern desktop conferencing
soft codecs. Wireless connectivity also complements
traditional wired connectivity, particularly if there
is a preference for tablet’s or a need for flexible
presentation positions. Larger meeting rooms and
event spaces require careful consideration so that
the systems deployed can be tailored to the clients
specific needs today and infrastructure provided to
allow future flexibility should those needs change.
The Recursive team have extensive experience in
the available technology for the modern office space.
We like to work closely with our clients and will take
a leading role in all matters relating to technology to
ensure the clients aspirations and budget constraints

Expose Magazine for the works designed,
developed and installed at the prestigious Sun
& Sand Sports flagship store in the Dubai Mall.
The team have pushed boundaries in delivering
state-of-the-art digital innovation to bring a
unique customer/shopper experience which
begins when first entering the store.
Rich content media screens feature information
points and the store catalogue. Customers can
peruse online, select and try before they buy and
connect to social media channels. The Recursive
team developed bespoke hardware and software
solutions in order to create physical trial zones
based around running, football and basketball,
along side an automated gait analysis process
to analyse the stance, gait and running pattern
to each individual customer.
Recursive have delivered similar bespoke
approaches across a wide range of sectors
and museums and retail based environments.
The Recursive team have worked in partnership
with leading global organisations in producing
one of a kind digital experiences. The team
have used the same approach learnt from
the corporate and entertainment sectors and
adapted this to the demanding customer facing
environment where each and every customer
experience defines the Client perception.
This detailed approach means defining and
specifying everything from the data cabling,
the power and data outlets, the floor boxes,
patchbays, rack layouts, servers, cooling
requirements for the kit all the way through
to the design and specification of the audio
systems, loudspeaker placement, design and
arrangement of screens, software integration
between systems and the overall control &
media strategy to ensure the robust results
8. In todays digital environment, software is at the heart of nearly all systems and
cannot be ignored if a cohesive system solution is to be successfully deployed.
Multiple system components must be able to interactive and operate as if they are
As a design consultancy, Recursive have a built a unique reputation on developing
and deploying bespoke software solutions alongside more traditional hardware
design within the majority of our projects, in order to solve system integration
challenges. With an extensive project portfolio which spans across Europe, Middle
East and Asia, in each example there has been an element of purpose built software
in order to deliver the correct user experience. Past project examples include LDN
19 (Left & Above), Qatar National Library and Savoy Place London (Right).

The deployment of Digital Media can be key for businesses
that want to attract, communicate and engage with their
customers and clients leaving an clear statement around their
brand, culture, ideas and identify.
Recursive have been engaged to provide cutting edge digital
communication technology in a number of corporate offices, venues
and retail environments, which include Harrods, London (image right,
Harrods Escalator) and The Dubai Mall, Grand Drive, Fashion Catwalk
Atrium, Aquarium and Ice Rink.
Within each project the Recursive team have designed an unique experience
configured to the specific business requirements using technologies such as
LED banners and tickers, large scale visual merchandising screens, ultra high
definition (UHD) video walls, interactive experiences and immersive audio and
An important part of these systems are the behind the scenes media production
facilities where new content can be created and re-purposed, scheduled and deployed.
Recursive firmly believe that the additional work flow should fit within the all ready
established methods being used in house to ensure media can be easily deployed by
fitting into existing CMS or content creation packages, often designing bespoke software
plug-ins to make the new systems as transparent as possible to the media or web team who
will drive it.
