IM Group Headquarters, Solihull
We had the pleasure of working alongside Squaredot on the recent new headquarters for IM Group: The new state of the art campus, with wellbeing at its heart, utilises cutting edge technology and forward-thinking design.
Squaredot are a team of creatives working closely with their clients to create unique, innovative workplace design & strategy specific to each project. The concept they developed for IM Group was based around creating an experience for staff and visitor alike, emulating the drama of the building and continuing the journey from outside to inside.
Just as the campus would be revealed upon the approach, the intention was for different aspects of the interior to be revealed as you journeyed through the buildings. The aim was to challenge the traditional notion of office planning and create an open environment with changing landscapes and points of interest that encourage fluidity, visibility, movement and connections on all levels.
The scheme characterises the different businesses and complements the distinctive base build materials. Core-Ten, concrete and glass were the principal materials for the building, forming its distinctive character and a backdrop for the unique interior and exciting furniture scheme incorporating a myriad of finishes and including Bute Fabrics.
The scheme cleverly compliments the outside and plays with light and shade, angles, views, textures and colours. Meeting rooms are accentuated with vivid coloured glass while timber shuttered concrete walls create dark transition spaces through the buildings core, providing views through to the light & airy colourful spaces and on to the external backdrop of trees beyond.
