We were recently chosen as furniture procurement and consultancy partner to support CubicWorks and Bridge Architects in transforming a new state-of-the-art workspace in Manchester City Centre. Bloc, which is part of Bruntwood Works, was originally known as Lowry House but has adopted a new identity as a multi-purpose working environment. The space was designed to “balance business within an urban oasis” and was awarded the Mixology Award for Workplace Interiors Project 15k – 30k sq ft for 2021.
The Penketh Group team worked alongside CubicWorks and Bridge Architects to fulfill the brief of connecting different parts of the building through a full refurbishment. Design considerations were to include: biophilia, wellbeing, amenity, lighting, technology, interactive art, community, and collaboration spaces.
Engagement of the senses (touch, smell and visual impact) were also crucial when creating this multi-sensory space – a consideration the Penketh Group furniture consultancy team remained loyal to when sourcing and suggesting products to suit the project specifications.
