The Brief

Irwin Mitchell are the UK’s leading full-service law firm with over 100 years of experience. Having completed numerous projects across the UK for Irwin Mitchell we were delighted to build on our experience and long-standing relationship with their team.

The brief for this CAT B design and fit out project included a need for flexible, agile workspaces as well as a large breakout, lounge area. The aim for their new Bristol workplace was to blend their brand into modern, flexible spaces that enable collaboration alongside ample room to breakout and recharge.

What we did

At the entrance we designed a client facing reception area with a suite of flexible meeting spaces including adjoining meeting rooms with bi-fold partitions allowing the spaces to be used for larger presentations.

In the main workspace we introduced a central collaboration table, meeting booths, additional meeting spaces alongside focused desk areas. A bay of lockers makes storage easy and enables the hot-desking approach to work seamlessly. The breakout area has a full-size kitchen with multiple hot/cold zip taps, a proper coffee machine and double American style fridge. The lounge area has soft seating, comfy booths and a wall length cushioned bench. The area is decorated with impressive wall art of local landmarks such as the iconic Clifton suspension bridge.

Using premium furniture from Allermuir and custom upholstery by Camira the design incorporates the Irwin Mitchell brand colours throughout. The quality of the furniture choices ensures the team are working comfortably all day.

the results

The new space supports the Irwin Mitchell team to work more effectively in the way they need to. The design enables flexibility and collaborative work alongside plenty of desk space for heads down focus.

“Contract, Project Management and Site Management; it was all excellent. People and process; all excellent. A flexible collaborative approach and the team were very thoughtful and nice to deal with.”
