Atelier Ten designed the new offices for Chivas Brothers, part of the Pernod Ricard Group, on Blythswood Square in Glasgow’s city centre, playing a key role in their relocation from their historic location in Paisley.
This project allowed Atelier Ten to demonstrate their understanding of Health and Wellness in the workplace by working with the internal stakeholders to create a response to the Wellness agenda, this combined with the implementation of Bluetooth controls to contend with the challenge of dealing with a listed building structure combining the old and the new by using technology to minimise disturbance to the building fabric solved the challenge of creating an exciting and modern space in a listed structure.
The design brief demanded a reimagining of the work environment. Chivas Brothers needed a space that could positively impact the work culture of the organisation, encouraging an attitude of conviviality – the very foundation of the company and its products. During the fit-out we solved a number of challenges presented by the base build services.
Atelier Ten worked alongside Graven to help create an exceptional and flexible working environment to support the organisation’s future growth plans, effectively combining architecture and technology to enable staff to get the best out of all areas of the building depending on their task or needs.
