Brand Union took the lease on a building that had lain empty for 5 years with disconnected floors and a bland entrance. Our design for their new office involved reconfiguring floors by cutting the slab and introducing 3 new stair cases connecting the new ‘shopfront’ on the ground level whilst also providing a stair that doubled as presentation and breakout space. This also increased light penetration to the surrounding areas. By making these changes the lower ground floor has added 1,063 sq m to the space - previously unusable due to access restraints and lack of daylight.
We have created an environment that encourages mingling; fostering a culture where people work across teams and disciplines yet need to share creative solutions. Delivering Brand Union's desire to have a small agency feel but on a large scale and a celebration of what they do and who they are.
This project has won the British Council for Offices (BCO) Award for Fit Out of Workplace London and South East 2015.
Along with our Client, the team that delivered this exciting project are very proud to have been part of this, they include BDG architecture + design along with:
