Project Description

Client: ForrestBrown

Location: Bristol, UK

Size: 23,207sq ft

WyldeIA worked with ForrestBrown to design an exciting and unique concept for their new premises in the centre of Bristol.

ForrestBrown is the UK’s largest specialist research and development tax credit consultancy. Named ‘best independent consultancy firm’ at The Taxation Awards 2018, ForrestBrown delivered more than £100m in tax credits for its clients last year. 

This success combined with big aspirations for the coming years, has prompted the office move.  Its 120-strong team have relocated from Whiteladies Road to stunning new offices on the second floor of 10 Temple Back – right in the heart of Bristol’s core business district in the city centre. 

WyldeIA worked with the award-winning tax consultancy firm to develop a daring scheme deliberately designed to feel more like a creative agency than a traditional financial services business. The office provides a collaborative and innovative space where people can work with agility and can choose different types of spaces to work in different ways to suit them.

Spaces include a dynamic office area with hot desks, bold graphics and plenty of writing-on walls, coupled with areas for meetings and quiet working. Further intelligent design includes telephone booths with additional acoustics for private calls and an enriching and enlivening cafe space with a learning lab and flexible space for lunchtime yoga or events.  Meanwhile the reception area is enhanced with a graffiti mural designed and painted by our very own Harriet (Hazard0ne).

WyldeIA helped bring the Managing Director & Founder’s (Simon Brown) ideas to life, working alongside project management and cost consultancy services by CS2, mechanical and electrical engineers MLM, Intex Projects, Artworks Solutions & Furniture23.

The project has been a creative designer’s dream – with artwork, graffiti, furnishings, textures, patterns and bright colours. The branding was bold and has been carefully executed to create a truly inspirational and unique space. These offices perfectly reflect the workstyle of ForrestBrown and their commitment to their employee wellbeing, coupled with a fun and dynamic approach.
