5 inspiring offices in the Midlands
Our expansion into the Midlands has got us thinking about places we find inspiring in this area. From Leicestershire to Birmingham, to East Midlands to West Midlands, we’ve found some amazing office spaces worthy of a mention.
The Midlands area can often be overlooked as somewhere businesses are thriving and growing, with a lot of the focus on the North West. So, with that, let’s look at some cool offices in the Midlands.
383, Birmingham, West Midlands
383 is a digital media agency based in Birmingham, West Midlands and in 2014 they decided to open a new office in the Jewellery Quarter, which they impressively designed themselves. This allowed them to have input from the team, so they could really make it a space that reflected the team!
They made the most of the industrial features, something areas around the Midlands, including Birmingham are known for (you’ll know what we’re talking about if you’ve seen Peaky Blinders!).
Gensler, Birmingham, West Midlands
What’s not to love about huge windows and cool light fittings? That’s exactly what Gensler in Birmingham have incorporated into their open plan workspace, and we are loving everything about it. Located in Birmingham’s creative quarter (Digbeth), Gensler have not only managed to create a working environment that is lovely and airy, they’ve also incorporated impressive furniture – something our interior designer loves!
Karl Studio, Nottingham, East Midlands
This inspiring collaborative co-working studio based in Nottingham has got us thinking about our own desk areas. With separate spaces for all your equipment and wall space to make you feel at home, this office in the Midlands genuinely has the tenant in mind.
There’s even a sofa for people to take naps… this may seem crazy but having a snooze after lunch is proven to increase productivity in the afternoon!
PKF Cooper Parry, Solihull, West Midlands
The first thing that stood out for us in this office space was how colourful the space is – who wouldn’t be drawn to the vibrancy of the place!
120 people made the move from their old Edgbaston office to the new workspace, dubbed “parrydise” situated in Solihull.
This bold design includes a Segway track, swings and themed meeting rooms. We love that this workspace reflects the very latest in modern working.
Not your typical accountant’s office…
Assay Studios, Birmingham, West Midlands
This 1870s building has some amazing traditional features, which have been cleverly combined with contemporary aspects. The dark wood combined with white walls and modern lighting features makes for a comfortable environment.
It’s the perfect place for creative and tech companies looking for an inspiring environment to thrive. Birmingham is full of character and this building highlights every inch of this.
That’s a wrap
That wraps up or pick of some of the most inspiring midlands office space. The midlands is a vibrant region with some of the most forward thinking companies, it’s no wonder that their office space reflects that.
