The design took full consideration of the client’s brief and vision. This office was designed to both reflect the company’s brand identity and provide a space for its employees to feel proud of. The finished office allows for the ever-growing company’s expansion, giving the user flexibility of several different meeting and working spaces throughout the building.

Steven Ryles, Principal Architect, said “This design features a range of incredible interior and architectural details, looking to reflect on the client’s industrial connections, by highlighting the structure and other raw materials across the entirety of the main office area and warehouse. The open two-storey office space and individual spaces around its perimeter are truly stunning and it’s a space we’re incredibly proud of. The team worked so hard throughout this project, and we’re honoured that RIBA have shortlisted Basetek in their Commercial New Build category.”
