We did it again! We’ve got some more exciting awards news… Our project at Wyke Farms in Wincanton has been shortlisted for a Mixology Award 2021 – Project of The Year (sub 5,000 sqft) . Our projects for both Thatchers and Innocent were selected as finalists for the Mixology Awards 2020 and after such a tough year we’re thrilled to still be producing projects that are hugely successful!
We were appointed to develop and design a new reception and admin hub for Wyke Farms in Wincanton. Fortunately, we were brought in early enough to be able to influence the final building arrangement, introducing large curtain wall glazing at first floor level, that fills the space with light, and open ceilings with exposed ductwork which ties in with manufacturing nature of the business. Ultimately, we created a space that is practical and flexible, whilst being light, fresh and welcoming with a brand identity that is intrinsically part of the interior.
This part of the site was new-build. We had the advantage of being able to design every aspect of the interior, from tricky wall and roof junctions to the gorgeous feature staircase and reception desk in reception. As we know from lots of recent studies, acoustic management plays a huge part in the success of a working environment. We integrated wall and ceiling treatments into open plan and meeting areas working with the Artworks Solutions products…
The Wyke family had lots of memorabilia relating to farming, dairy and cheese production, that they’d lovingly collected over time. Working closely with Dave Nowell at Artwork Solutions, we devised a clever way of displaying the items. Each wall has a theme relating to butter or cheese production using a mix of photographs, typography and historic artefacts.
