The Brief

London based investor, Investream purchased their first Manchester property, Brook House and appointed Workspace Design and Build as the principal contractor to refurbish the whole building - 7 floors, the roof and basement. Working alongside Simon Millington at Incognito, Sixteen Real Estate and Avison Young, we implemented the stylish designs to create ‘Origin’. With the whole building being renovated, this gave the designers freedom to create a space they felt would reflect businesses in Manchester.

A Manchester Original

This impressive building is now home to 22 suites, a roof garden, gym, shower room and business lounge. As well as all the open plan office space, we worked with the designers to create an inspiring space in the business lounge where employees could work away from their desk, take a break, or socialise. It was important to make the lounge feel separate to the usual working environment, and we achieved this with the furniture, flooring and decoration,

Russell Davis, Managing Director of Workspace Design and Build said: “This is definitely one of my favourite projects that we have worked on. It’s stylish, original and full of character. It’s been a joy to work with everyone involved! The whole team are so proud to add this to the repertoire of projects.”
