We have launched a new video showcasing the design journey behind the office transformation for Shoosmiths at 103 Colmore Row in Birmingham. The video provides insider perspectives into how Office Principles collaborated closely with Shoosmiths to create a tailored workspace serving the law firm's people, brand and vision.

Featured in the video are Tina Batham, Managing Director of Office Principles Birmingham, and Julie Hattersley, Design Director. They provide a behind-the-scenes look at how the space was envisioned and brought to life.

Key highlights include:

  • An 80-meter long ribbon sculpture handcrafted to unify the space and reflect Shoosmith's infinity logo
  • Flexible work areas to support collaboration, focus, and hospitality events
  • Accessibility and inclusivity considerations such as 100% sit-stand desks and a variety of meeting room settings
  • Bespoke spaces like "The Specter Suite" for more relaxed and formal conversations

"Enabling an organization like Shoosmiths to thrive means deeply understanding their unique aspirations and pain points," said Tina Batham. "Every design decision we made was focused on creating an adaptive, motivating and comfortable workspace in service of Shoosmiths' people and vision for the future."

The video provides valuable behind-the-scenes insights for any organization considering refreshing their office environment.
