2023. The Grade 2 listed building 3PB occupied in Bristol underwent a massive Cat A overhaul, resulting in an opportunity for 3PB to reenvisage their office environment. RAW, together with 3PB, co-designed a fantastic contemporary space, with a huge amount of natural light gained from the four metre ceilings and beautiful period arch sash windows.
With a modern, refined client facing area providing highly acoustic efficient video conferencing rooms and a multi-use agile boardroom complete with acoustic raft, vid-con capability and flip top tables to allow flexibility, 3PB have given every detail thought. Members of the chambers were consulted throughout the change, to ensure all bases were covered; true bottom-up design.
The communal kitchen and breakout area is a welcoming space to socialise and conduct creative team meetings, with use of a meeting pod, smartboard and semi-private booth space. Again, the full height ceilings, and exposed mechanical systems make the environment feel super modern yet all the way though the scheme, Our design takes advantage of the natural light penetrating deep into the spaces, whilst being sympathetic to the base building, bringing through many existing features into 3PB demise.
Employee wellbeing is priority, with sit-stand desking throughout, encouraging the clerks and office staff to be more physically active throughout the day.
Our time working with 3PB and in the city of Bristol has been fantastic, thank you.
