PROJECT: New self-storage building in Banbury
This is the first purpose built self-storage facility for our client Magenta in Banbury, Oxfordshire, offering storage solutions for both private and business use.
Located close to junction 11 off the M40 on a busy industrial park, the design was led by Magenta's strong corporate colours and the focus on an 'open', welcoming building.
Self storage originated from the US and is a relatively new industry in the UK. With more than 1000 stores across UK the industry has grown steadily since it's beginnings in the early 1980's and holds the strongest market within Europe.
Albeit the steady growth, a recent survey shows that the industry is still not very well known amongst the public. As a result not only a good location is vital but also the best possible marketing.
The development of the Magenta signage and logo went hand in hand with the building design.
