The Vision

The Vision

To truly enhance their new workplace, the SunLife team wanted a “wow-factor” design. This interior office design brief therefore revolved around creating a unique and modern space, which would also be sympathetic to the building’s traditional use as a soap and vinegar warehouse and its location on Bristol’s waterfront.

The Result

The Result

The finished result is a modern two-floor space that utilises clean lines and one-of-a-kind touches. To ensure the design harked back to the building’s heritage and waterfront location, the creative minds at Interaction sourced and integrated retro soap advertisements, rustic brick-effect walls, a shipping telegraph and ship wheel.

Standing out when compared to other interior office designs in Bristol, SunLife's new space combines practicality and visual appeal, but will also facilitate a new working culture for the team by providing more flexible working areas.

Key design features

  • A central tree in the breakout space, inspired by the way a trunk’s rings represent age, which also hints at SunLife’s 200 years’ experience.

  • A varied choice of spaces for working and downtime.

  • Manhattan style glazing partitioning for natural space divides.

  • The latest technology to make day-to-day tasks far more efficient, such as booking meeting rooms.

  • The incorporation of Manhattan glass to help create a sophisticated loft style, enhance visibility and show off the amazing suite.
