SunLife Office by Interaction, Bristol – England

February 16th, 2018 by retail design blog

Interaction have created a “wow-factor” design for the unique and modern offices for financial services company SunLife, located in Bristol, England. To truly enhance their new workplace, the SunLife team wanted a “wow-factor” design. The brief therefore revolved around creating a unique and modern space, which would also be sympathetic to the building’s traditional use as a soap and vinegar warehouse. The finished result is a modern two-floor space that utilises clean lines and one-of-a-kind touches.

To ensure the design harked back to the building’s heritage and waterfront location, the creative minds at Interaction sourced and integrated retro soap advertisements, rustic brick-effect walls, a shipping telegraph and ship wheel. Unlike any other office space in Bristol, the design combines practicality and visual appeal, but will also facilitate a new working culture for the team by providing more flexible working areas.

The key features of the space include a central tree in the breakout space, inspired by the way a trunk’s rings represent age, which also hints at SunLife’s 200 years’ of experience, a varied choice of spaces for working and downtime, the latest technology to make day-to-day tasks far more efficient, such as booking meeting rooms, and the incorporation of Manhattan glass to help create a sophisticated loft style, enhance visibility and show off the amazing suite.
