Client: MotoNovo

Location: Cardiff, Wales

Size: 71,000sqft

Wylde IA worked in collaboration with Morgan Lovell. We were briefed to create a space that reflected their fast-paced nature, rewarding culture and Welsh heritage, all while creating a place that colleagues love to call home. The finance company wanted a design scheme that would be flexible and resilient whilst the company continues to grow.

We worked alongside Morgan Lovell and the client team to provide a dynamic workplace that houses over 800 desks, spread across 71,500 sq ft of space. In order to break this into a series of intimate spaces, we used contrasting colours, textures and colours to define each area.

While the workstations are lit with bright primary colours, the meeting rooms and client areas feature biophilic touches through the form of wooden panelling and slate walls. With such a vast floor space, we used contrasting textures and colours on the carpet to create micro-areas within the open plan area.

The workplace aids productivity – space for collaboration is balanced with break-out areas, a working bar and a large cafeteria.

 “The new office provides our staff with a first-class working environment. We continually strive to create a culture in which people move up, not on, so being able to provide the team with offices they can be proud of is hugely significant.”
