‘kin create a ‘journey of discovery’ at Taylor Wessing’s art-filled workspace
Design consultancy ‘kin has revealed a bold new space for the global law firm’s Liverpool office, located on the city’s iconic Albert Docks.
Flooring designer and manufacturer Milliken has been awarded WELL Certification at the Platinum level for its Clerkenwell Showroom by the International WELL Building Institute.
The prestigious distinction was awarded through IWBI’s WELL v2 pilot, the next version of the WELL Building Standard. WELL is the premier building standard to focus on enhancing people’s health and wellness through the buildings where we live, work and play.
Milliken’s three storey showroom is a multi-functional space used as a gallery for showcasing flooring collections, sample storage and distribution, client meetings, hospitality and events, meeting space and as a flexible work and well-being hub for Milliken employees.
Created through seven years of rigorous research and development working with leading physicians, scientists, and industry professionals, the WELL Building Standard is a performance-based certification system that marries best practices in design and construction with evidence-based scientific research. Milliken’s London Showroom at 5 Berry Street earned the distinction based on ten categories of building performance — Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind and Community — and achieved a Platinum level rating (the highest of the three WELL certification levels achievable!)
Some of the features that helped Milliken’s London showroom achieve Platinum status include:
‘We are extremely excited and proud that our stunning Clerkenwell showroom is the first showroom/retail space in the UK to be WELL Certified,’ says Alison Kitchingman, Milliken’s Marketing and Design Director. ‘To receive the highest level of certification – Platinum – is an amazing achievement and reflects our philosophy and commitment to well-being in all the spaces we help to create.’
