Now the silly season has passed and we seem to be hurtling towards Easter at a rate of (windy) knots. We wanted to pause for a second, catch our breath and share some exciting news with you. We’ve only just dipped our toes into 2016, but already we’re delighted to announce that we’ve started working with the 'The old lady of Threadneedle Street' and so proud to see our workplace design for private Nordic bank SEB featured in the go-to global reference book for designers, interior designers and architects - Frame.

Publishers Frame, feature SEB in their latest book ‘The Other Office 2’ that’s dedicated to Workplace Design (a global overview of prevailing trends in office design). It’s always a great feeling to see our work being appreciated and acknowledged by a wider audience.

We’re also over the moon to have recently taken up shop in Bristol and have an office now in the beautiful West Country - just a stone's throw away from The New Bristol Brewery. Bristol is known as one of the best cities to live and work, and last year was awarded European Green Capital city. We’re looking forward to connecting with brave, like-minded businesses and brands that see the value in putting people, place and performance at the heart of their workplace design plans. And of course, sharing a cheeky pint (or two) of locally brewed ales...

Later on this year co-founder Steve Brewer has set himself a charity cycle challenge to ride (in one go) 220 miles through the heart of Blighty. Departing Manchester and arriving in London. It takes a high speed train over 3 hours, a time he’d love to beat (!) but instead he’s happy to settle for exceeding his fundraising target of £750 for the incredible charity ‘Ambitious about Autism’. So if you have any pennies tucked down the sofa, your generosity would be greatly appreciated.  

Lastly, we’re going to be super busy designing multiple floors of an iconic building in London for the world’s second-largest reinsurer….

And while you’re ‘watching this space’ for more exciting news from us - why not have a listen to our latest podcast that explores the idea of ‘Free Range' offices and for the first time ever, we look into the ‘interiors’ of people’s heads!!
