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 designed to “balance business within an urban oasis”.
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.
