It was important for Frome Business Park to retain the buildings industrial heritage but to also juxtapose this with the modern utilities and design required in current high-end office space. This resulted in a mash of time periods, marrying Manhattan glazing and steel piping with natural biophilia and wooden internal structures. A key feature of the design and the fit-out is a 25-metre living wall that is seamlessly tied into existing steel elements.
The finished product is both functional and inspirational, practical and motivating. Forming a key part of the brief, and any coworking space, it was imperative to provide a wide variety of working environments to cater to each individual and business need. Key features include 8 meeting rooms, ad hoc high benches, breakout spaces, quiet pods, meeting booths, a gym and soft seating areas all combined with AV and technological support. The result is an innovative, bright and modern space promoting community and collaboration between a number of businesses.
