Creative space at Brand Union wows British Council for Offices judges.

WPP owned, global brand strategy and design agency, Brand Union has been awarded a prestigious British Council for Offices accolade for their new creative space in Clerkenwell. Brand Union and architects BDG, which designed the offices at 6 Brewhouse Yard, were awarded the Best Fit-Out of Workplace London & South East Award, which recognises the highest quality of work environments.

Jonny Westcar, MD London at Brand Union, commented: “Our new space epitomises @brandunion – open, creative and flexible. Our creatives worked alongside the fantastic team of architects at BDG to transform an empty grey void into a vibrant, inspiring and co-creational environment that fuels creative thinking. We’re already seeing the difference in the way we work and our staff and clients love being part of it”.

The offices are split on three levels seamlessly connective working and social spaces to encourage a natural flow that entices staff to utilise the areas to their full creative potential. The design has pushed the boundaries of architecture allowing a new take on features such as the staircase which doubles up as social and presentation spaces, while the shop front floor to ceiling glass allows light to effortlessly pour in creating a fresh and bright environment.

Ewan Ferrier, Creative Director at Brand Union, added: “What we’ve produced together is a small agency feel on a large scale that celebrates what we do and who we are. It’s intimate and personal but expansive and open at the same time, incorporating an innovative use of space that encourages creative collaboration. We’re proud of our space and the recognition we have received from a high industry level”.
