AHR applies innovative biophilic design principles at The Spine building
For the northern home of The Royal College of Physicians, AHR Architects was tasked with creating a building that leaves its occupants healthier.
Managed workspace concept Department is launching its search for founding members at its first Leeds site, which will be fully operational from October 2022.
October 2022 will see the launch of a new work, wellness and social development in Leeds Dock, designed to support and bolster the region’s thriving media and creative scene.
Part of All Work & Social’s portfolio, Department Leeds Dock will sit within a former casino as part of a waterside community that is also home to Sky and Channel 4, offering flexible workspace memberships, including hot desking, bespoke suites and large multi-purpose spaces and production studios. The social element of Department includes a cafe, cinema, community events, culture festivals, and a unique food, drink and retail concept, Department Store.
“Relationships with workspaces are completely different to how they were two years ago. Now, businesses need adaptability, flexibility and somewhere that is more than a workplace,” says Department Managing Director, Anthony Powell. “We’ve had great success in Manchester with the Department Bonded Warehouse community and we’re excited to be bringing our concept to Leeds to support the creative and media communities.”
Department has additional plans to open at London Road Fire Station near Manchester Piccadilly and Savile Row in London in 2023.
