Workplace design firm creates communal space at landmark building

Workplace design and build company Interaction has created a vibrant communal space for tenants in a landmark new office development in Bristol city centre.

Interaction has designed the refreshment and bar area within the Level 12 clubroom of Assembly Building C, part of a flagship mixed-use regeneration scheme in Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

Interaction was commissioned by Axa IM Alts and their development partner, Bell Hammer, to design this part of the clubroom which includes a 5,000 sq.ft. rooftop terrace that offers spectacular views across Bristol, creating an engaging space for all tenants to use.

The new clubroom is open daily for all the tenants of Building C and will also be used for a range of wellbeing activities including fitness classes and social events. The clubroom can also be booked by the tenants for their own private functions via the Assembly Bristol app. Its design complements the stunning finishes found within the rest of the building, with a strong focus on sustainability.

Patrick Davis, development manager at Bell Hammer, said, “We really enjoyed working with Interaction on the delivery of the fit out to the club room. They quickly understood Assembly Bristol’s unique design, its distinctive colour palette and the brief to promote occupier delight and wellness. Interaction’s impressive design of the rooftop clubroom perfectly complements the look and feel of the rest of the building, providing a place for tenants to come together in a relaxed and informal setting to enjoy the panoramic views over the city.”

The 12-storey Building C was completed at the end of 2023 and tenants currently include Clarke Willmott and Nordic. It is one of three state-of-the-art office buildings at Assembly Bristol which overlook the city’s floating harbour.

Hayley Blacker, a director at Interaction, said: “Commercial tenants today are looking for quality workplaces that support the wellbeing of their teams and which help to build a sense of community.

“So we are delighted to be working with such forward-thinking companies like Axa IM Alts and Bell Hammer who really understand this. The clubroom at Assembly C is a fantastic communal space for all those who work in this stunning new building.”
