What we do
Combining our three core specialisms with cross sector experience from a world-class team, we transform businesses through the built environment and enhance the way people work.
The clients team approached us with their pre-existing design guidelines which we then interpreted and rationalised, harmonising recognisable elements of their branding with the unique vernacular that their new site offered.
The scope of works included strip out and refurbishment to CAT A & CAT B standard of various office areas within the site, including some adjustments to the front and internal façades, external works and MEPH installations.
Working within this unusual building which was previously a tannery factory didn’t come without its’ challenges. Thin and narrow in shape and a unique sawtooth roof design presented challenges in terms of layout, acoustics and the subsequent M&E design.
The unique layout of the building leant itself to the creation of smaller pockets of space which were transformed into private office space for smaller to medium sized teams. Larger stretches of long and narrow space were attributed to more open plan style desking that would work for more “drop-in” style clientele, ultimately making the space attractive to a wide range of tenants.
Specialist joinery items were required to fit within the tight placement of structural columns that featured extensively throughout the factory building. We developed a comprehensive wayfinding package as part of our design proposal which included exterior branding and entrance signage, while internally bespoke signage was cut into metal and painted elements included stair core and walkways as well as custom mural graphics.
