Interaction transforms former Bath distillery building into stunning new HQ

Award-winning workplace design and build company Interaction has moved to new state-of-the-art offices in a former distillery building in the centre of Bath.

The firm has transformed the Grade II listed building in Edgar Mews into a flexible new workspace for up to 70 staff, making it one of the largest new office developments in the area.

Designed sympathetically to reflect the building’s heritage, Interaction’s new HQ called The Quarter spans four floors and merges indoor and outdoor spaces with an atrium, roof terrace, huge windows, and plenty of office greenery and natural light.

The fourth floor has been added by Interaction to include the rooftop terrace, as well as a kitchen and bar. There are a variety of workspaces for both focussed and collaborative working, including booth and bench seating.

Other features include a wellbeing room, a podcast room, and active travel facilities including bike storage spaces and showers to encourage employees to walk, run and cycle to work.

The historic building, which was built sometime before 1810, has been developed according to the WELL building sustainability guidelines, applying principles of high energy efficiency.

The move to new headquarters follows a record year for Interaction and a string of major design project wins. They include the design and fit-out of Osborne Clarke’s new flagship workplace in Bristol’s Halo building, one of the UK’s greenest office developments.

“We have a proud tradition of taking neglected historic spaces and turning them into market-leading workplaces.

So we’re hugely excited to be moving into our historic new Bath home which has been empty for so many years. It was important to retain some of the building’s rich history and heritage, whilst creating a thoroughly modern workplace that fosters culture, creativity and flexibility.

The result is a vibrant and dynamic new home where our talented team of workplace designers and strategists can thrive as we embark on our next exciting phase of growth.”

Dieter Wood, Interaction’s Managing Director
