The Castle – money.co.uk office by Interaction, Cirencester – UK

January 22nd, 2017 by retail design blog

Having not had any major work done in years, the Grade II listed Victorian “Castle” they occupied did not illustrate their current standing and vision for the future of the business. At the heart of the refurbishment was their team, to reward staff with the best place to work. This meant creating an environment where their team can flourish, fulfil their potential and feel happy.

The design concept was a juxtaposition of the traditional architecture at The Castle, alongside a contemporary and one-of-a-kind finish. The distinctive building provides a characterful and quirky workplace setting, therefore the interior needed to reflect the eccentricity of the exterior. The unique design features include, but are not limited to, a bespoke Star Wars themed cinema complete with popcorn machine, hand painted suits of armour, “Rolling Stones” and “Steam Punk” themed bathrooms.

An important part of creating the ultimate office meant focusing on the functionality of the workplace, designing a space that would allow the team to work effectively. Interaction explored the needs of the individuals and created a multitude of flexible work settings to enable people to work the way they want. This included creating spaces such as the ice cave, ski lodge, and ‘high-tech’ room which can all be used to have informal meetings, socialise, or simply relax.

The result of the £3 million investment is a fun, unique and extraordinary environment that goes beyond convention to give everyone at money.co.uk the ultimate workplace. After 9 months on site, the client is beyond delighted with the finished product that has generated real value for the company. This project is a perfect example of how by placing wellbeing at the centre of the brief and design you can use your workplace as a tool to incite a positive culture and enhance productivity.
