Fast-growing co-working conquerors Runway East have completed their eighth project with Interaction. Brighton’s ecosystem of emerging startups and creative businesses makes it the natural choice to expand Runway East’s tight-knit community.
Operating from York & Elder Works, a Legal and General development, this characterful space is only a short distance from Brighton’s iconic of The Lanes – a hotspot of antique and vintage shops. Each Runway East space takes inspiration from its local area and this unique neighbourhood was a key influence in the design: it’s the perfect blend of quirky, intriguing and playful.
Every meeting room is themed around the shops situated on The Lanes including Gander, North Laine Bazaar, ERA, and Snoopers Paradise. We sourced an eccentric mix of unique and mid-century furniture pieces including a 19th-century Italian Porcelain dog statue, retro Flake 99 ice cream metal signage, and an assortment of art deco pieces and vintage games.
Runway East co-working spaces foster community and collaboration. They make every kind of work possible, from deep solo effort to buzzing social get-togethers. Each of the 3 teapoints embody a different identity to encourage exploration and promote chance encounters between members. At one end is a beach-inspired set up with hut-like booths and on the flip side a sea of orange with bespoke fluted wooden cabinets and wave wall manifestation.
Vibrant murals by Instagram’s Richard O’Gorman frame the communal spaces. His style captures Brighton’s culture with big bold colours, a nod to the beach and exuberance.
Just like Brighton, this space is full of eccentricities such as a Hobbit door leading to an informal meeting space (or nap room), board game tables, and a disco ball room.
