Following a strip out back to shell & core, we worked with property developer Capsule Properties to create a workspace for 299 Lighting in their 8,000 sqft industrial building. The design concept included inspiration taken from the historical details sourced at the Bristol Archives regarding the building’s past uses, applied principles to reduce the amount of materials required, and used natural and sustainable solutions throughout.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In a 2,000 sq ft building full of the grand characteristics of neoclassical architecture, we created a warm and homely atmosphere for television company Five Mile Films. The space planning was an especially important stage in the design process for this client to explore the range of possible layouts for their requirements, as their space occupies four floors with both front and rear access. Finishes and furniture were carefully considered to provide both the durability of a commercial workspace solution alongside a residential inspired aesthetic.
