BioMed Realty is at the forefront of real estate provision to life science and technology industries.
Their location in Granta Park means they provide easy access to the thriving life science organisations that look to BioMed Realty for their expertise. After their recent relocation within the Science Park, COEL were asked to provide them with a design and fit out of their new office and marketing suite.
Windows wrap around BioMed’s new office space giving outstanding access to a beautiful view of the Park’s lake and allow the interior space to be flooded with light. Glazed screening partitions were installed in the floor plan to harness the natural light and maximise its potential to illuminate the internal corridor.
Brand identity was key in all aspects of the design, seen in the adoption of the company’s logo within the interior space and the application of their corporate colour, a deep Klein blue. This iconic colour provides visual impact and effectively tempers the natural light levels.
A contemporary and sophisticated kitchen takes central positioning in the main communal area providing different zones for informal meet ups and group get togethers. Optional seating arrangements, including a luxurious corner sofa and stylish bar stools offer choice in how to work, and help to define the allocated work zones. Acoustic lighting is positioned over the long tables and chairs with the dual purpose of helping to absorb sound and to provide overhead lighting.
Wooden flooring flows through the kitchen into a hallway connecting individual private meeting rooms and a quieter open space to be used for more focused work. A focal point of bespoke joinery including shelving units and cupboards has been fitted in this area providing easy access to practical, sleek storage.
The BioMed Realty office resonates as a chic and professional workspace which reflects the company’s brand identity and celebrates a stylish way to work.
