The first images of Edward Street Quarter’s office space
By First Base
At the Big Brighton Quiz last week we got a CGI preview of Edward Street Quarter, Brighton’s newest destination. Edward Street Quarter will provide offices, homes, cafes, restaurant, and leisure facilities. Edward Street Quarter is a redevelopment of the former Amex House in Brighton.
Attendees were treated to a glimpse of how the interiors will look, which have been designed with a post-Covid world in mind. Think plenty of soft furnishings, plenty of space to socially distance, a stylish modern colour scheme and even indoor living walls.
A recent poll of Brighton Chamber members showed that 75% would choose a mix of office and remote working from now on. So, with the office still a key component of the working day, the Edward Street Quarter team decided to go one step further than a traditional stylish office space to put creativity, collaboration and wellbeing at the heart of the design.
First Base, developers of the site, also worked with renowned engineers Buro Happold to design in features that would boost mental and physical wellbeing, adding to the feelgood factor of working by the sea.
• Air filters and sensors to eliminate indoor pollutant levels.
• Three public green spaces, heavily planted with mature trees and an ‘edible’ garden full of herbs
• Floor to ceiling windows to bring in lots of natural light
• A library to encourage people to take a break and read.
• Walking and cycling trails around the site to encourage people to exercise. Plus, cycle parking and showers.
In this virtual world we’re now immersed in, it was great to get a sneak peek at the future of the office in a virtual walk through of one of Brighton’s newest office spaces. We’re looking forward to visiting the site, in person, sometime next year.
