Bristows are a leading firm of solicitors based in floors two the beautiful Unilever building on Embankment at Blackfriars, which had been completely gutted and rebuilt behind its listed façade into a dynamic set of multi tenanted offices’.

Solicitors to LaSalle, they were inspired by the refurbishment and fit out project we had undertaken at their HQ and asked us to assess and consult with the legal partner’s, over 35 equity partners on how they could use their space more imaginatively and change their model of cellular office for a senior and junior solicitor facing internal walls. The result was an extensive confidential consultation to review and challenge the Partners’ on their ideas and perceptions of new working styles and to assess the benefits and weaknesses of their existing way of working. Detailed illustrations and layouts were developed and presented of different work styles within the existing footprint with the result that the majority of Partners voted firmly in favour of the change.
