Land Securities Office and Marketing Space Design by ESA Architects, in Leeds, United Kingdom

June 12, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Interior Design

This Land Securities Office and Marketing Space is designed by ESA Architects, located in Leeds, United Kingdom.
The 8,500 sq ft floor plate features a “living wall”, which snakes its way from end to end subtly changing colour as it goes. The wall divides ‘public’ from working spaces, manifesting itself in various forms in its journey from end to end of the space. It starts at reception, coloured orange and on its way encloses meeting rooms, work stations, a library and kitchens. It culminates in the marketing suite in the form of a backdrop/servery, by which time it has become a deep red. Full height glazing overlooking the Trinity Quarter allows Land Securities to reveal the development site to visitors at exactly the right moment in the presentation.

Bamboo flooring has been used, delivering a low-cost, hardwearing alternative to hardwood.

Commenting on the project, creative director of ESA Nic Sampson said: “The living wall is an organizing device which threads its way through the office, functioning as a dual working and marketing space. It establishes a strong theme that Land Securities staff and visitors can identify with. They have immediately taken the new space to their hearts and pride in their environment is evident in the way in which they are tending it and the way they show off their facilities to visitors.”
