Location: Portwall Lane
Portwall Place is the second collaboration between Wylde IA’s design team with Opus and the third time invited back to work with Garry Watts.
Tracey Wylde worked alongside the client team to create an office of 15,000 sq ft in Portwall lane to accommodate 180 people within 4 months.
The brief incorporated working with some existing basebuild finishes and existing furniture, which were part of the Wylde IA Challenge. Simple but ingenious cost saving options including changing desk tops to white surfaces, made enormous differences with limited budget, enhancing the space and working better with the existing carpet.
Tracey Wylde said ‘They trusted our initial concept and the final scheme incorporates all those early ideas. Opus had the strong vision to make it a people focused space from the outset with a commitment to staff wellbeing. This is seen in informal cafe spaces, stand up meeting areas and a gym. innovative solutions like an ideas space with White boards, was further enhanced with a powerful branding and Artwork package to form a strong visual identity throughout.”
