Bruntwood Neo co-working spaces

Case Studies /

Neo is an £8m redevelopment of the former 12-storey Bank House building and is Bruntwood’s most evolved collaborative workspace to date. The word ‘Neo’ is taken from the Greek word ‘neonate’ which means a ‘fresh, revived form’.

Working with Bridge Architects, our brief was to create, innovative, forward-thinking spaces for meetings and co-working as a communal facility for occupants in the building. The ultimate objective being to create a space that will help people work efficiently and effectively, with wellbeing at the forefront of the plans.

Futuristic meeting rooms, social zones where people can meet for coffee in a stylish kitchen, nomadic zones where workers can quickly unpack and work for an hour, and comfy lounge seating areas for short-term focus work all come together in the space.

“We wanted an attractive, innovative space with good design that would ultimately help people. For example, when a client takes one of our serviced offices, we also include the meeting room rates within that price.

The well-being of our people here is also very much at the forefront of our plans. All new customers are given a complimentary fit-bit, we have quiet working areas, a lounge area with high stools for hot desking and innovative height-adjustable desks.

Penketh Group created the following spaces:

  • A mix of bespoke seating booths, a carefully selected range of seating types and settings and a communal kitchen island had been arranged, providing sophisticated, informal and flexible workspaces that give customers a choice and foster a sense of community for businesses to connect
  • 100 Fusion benches of which had been installed across the two floors of serviced offices
  • 12 height-adjustable desks across the co-working space
  • B-free high table and stools with wireless charging ports
  • The Reply chair (used in both the serviced offices and meeting space) and a height adjustable SMART interactive screen.
