The listed building has been developed into a collection of boutique offices, designed to attract new tenants to the prime location and appeal to the city-slickers of today and tomorrow. The landlord wanted to provide tenants with ‘plug & play’ style workspaces, where businesses are able move in and enjoy a fully functioning, agile working environment with a diverse range of settings from day one.
The new scheme seamlessly marries the ornate, gothic characteristics of the building’s exterior with a fresh, contemporary interior. As you will see from our video and images, the design scheme remains loyal to the building’s core character, flaunting its original, industrial features such as exposed pipes and ceiling. These elements are brought up to date by a portfolio of furniture selected by the designer to tick the boxes of both style and functionality.
We were able to fulfill AXI’s specifications for the space, procuring and delivering the desired furniture products. The Penketh Group team provided furniture that will furnish tenants with a versatile working environment, sensitive to modern requirements – from focus workstations with acoustics dividers and multifunctional meeting areas, to nooks with booths and soft seating for casual collaboration and impromptu tasks.
