Ocean Village is a mixed-use marina, residential, business and leisure development on the mouth of the River Itchen in Southampton, on the south coast of England. Originally the site of Southampton’s first working docks, the “Outer Dock” which opened in 1842, the area was redeveloped in 1986 and became the leisure marina it is today. Ocean Village is now currently undergoing another series of major, multi-million-pound redevelopment projects and is set to become one of the main leisure destinations in Southampton.

Barratt Homes sold the empty Phase 2 site for £5.7m in 2011 to Allied Developments, a Southampton-based property development company. The development includes a residential 26-storey tower, 299 apartments, and several new waterside bars and restaurants.

Diffusion supplied a Chameleon 2000 Electric (400mm diameter) finished in brushed stainless steel for the main concierge reception area to this plush new development within Ocean Village in Southampton. Diffusion designed a bespoke top bracket arrangement to suit the site application.
