This week Interaction were granted planning permission for a new cutting-edge office development at 3-4 Edgar Mews in the heart of Bath.
The project involves renovating an old distillery building that has lain disused for many years and converting it into a flexible workspace which can serve up to 70 staff, making it one of the largest new offices in the area.
The new space will include a striking contemporary additional floor and a new central courtyard and atrium. The building will be developed according to the WELL building sustainability guidelines, applying principles of high energy efficiency. A suite of active travel facilities will encourage employees to walk, run, cycle and scoot to work.
Over the years, Interaction has had five different homes around Bath, taking each from a derelict state and transforming it into a sustainable destination workplace.
Edgar Mews will act as a vibrant boost to local businesses and cafes, while attracting the best talent to Interaction and proving that Bath can hold its own when it comes to state-of-the-art creative workplaces.
Paul Haskins, Interaction’s founder, says: “We’re delighted to be taking a hidden gem of a space, which has been empty for many years, and bringing it up to date with a thoroughly considered contemporary redevelopment.
“As a company we’ve always taken on and revived unloved spaces, and Edgar Mews embodies that ethos. It’s going to be a fantastic workplace which encourages our team to thrive, inspires our clients, and provides a boost to local businesses. It’s a great opportunity to bring to life just one of the many unused spaces in the UK in a way which benefits everybody.”
