Muted colours and materials set the tone at this workspace from 5plus Architects

5plus has created an interactive and collaborative new office that reflects a new way of working for the client.


1 min read

5plus Architects was tasked with creating a new Manchester workspace that considers its client’s new business model, which was shifting from an inward-looking organisation to an outward facing enterprise. The office is now a vibrant working environment that cultivates innovation and ideas and offers collaborative and flexible working.

The space boasts a raw palette of materials with muted tones of block colour and timber to form an interior identity that runs throughout. Subdued colours of green, terracotta and natural wood is contrasted with black detailing and furniture.

Visitors and staff are welcomed by an interactive reception area, which incorporates a flexible workspace. This space flows into the public facing areas through a large café style kitchen that acts as a holding area for events. The multi-use event space features a dramatic black ceiling and feature lighting, comprising four sub-rooms adjoined by glazed sliding doors that add flexibility and provide seating for 100+ people.

Elsewhere, a marketing suite provides views over the city centre – offering a variety of environments such as glazed meeting rooms, intimate discussion areas and an open lounge. The suite was designed with flexibility in mind; with modular furniture that can be rearranged to provide either conference style seating or social amenity such as a lounge or yoga studio. The rest of the floor accommodates training areas for new members; an innovation hub and a tech free zone, providing areas for discussion and contemplation.
