The challenge

As their first and biggest regional co-working space outside of London, Work.Life set their sights high to create a game-changing workspace. They wanted a design promoting health and happiness with productivity in an industrial aesthetic that reflects the history of the city.

The solution

Our team set about developing a design concept centered around paying homage to the history, people and character of Manchester, while also embracing its culture and personality. In celebration of this being their first location outside of London, we experimented with new design features, including a central hub, encouraging collaboration.

  • Warm and inviting reception space with teapoint at Work.Life Manchester
    A warm welcome (Reception)
    A key feature of all Work.Life spaces is a warm and inviting reception area
  • Feature walls, neon quotes and themed spaces for collaboration
    Highlighting the area
    Feature walls, quotes and themed rooms are all ways the space pays tribute to Manchester
  • Individual soft seating cubicles enabling people to break away and find inspiration
    A chance to break out
    A variety of soft seating means people can break away and find inspiration elsewhere!
  • Meeting rooms and soft-seating informal meeting space at Work.Life Manchester
  • Smaller meeting room with green theme including feature wallpaper
  • Green chairs and biophilia near the teapoint servicing the meeting rooms
  • Feature modern lighting design using vintage-style light bulbs
  • Orange collaboration space with soft seating and a homely feel
  • Emmelline Pankhurst's book is a feature in this collaboration space
  • Blue meeting room with feature quote on the wall
  • Collaboration space in the centre of the meeting room area at Work.Life Manchester
