Wigan Council Project at a glance
The Council took the strategic decision to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment of the existing Town Hall building after a feasibility study exploring the number of buildings they were currently occupying and by bringing staff from a number of buildings under one roof proved savings could be made and service levels to the public improved. Plus3 architects were engaged to undertake a project to create open plan working floors and a number of collaborative work zones.
The design of these offices reflect the corporate colours and branding. Four shades of blue and four shades of green were included to create two different appearances to the one office. Walking one way through the office space you will see the four shades of blue. Walking the opposite way you will be introduced to the four shades of green.
The design of the office space and the different identities of the two sides of the space really added to the vibrancy of the site. The design team were able to incorporate the functional elements of an office into an inspiring design. This resulted in an office which is secure, light, spacious and even has an attractive waiting area for visitors. The public facing area has all of the functional elements for the council to be able to engage with customers with a striking front desk and seating whilst still allowing the space to be incredibly versatile.
