Antarctica Corian® transforms historic Manchester office

Antarctica Corian® transforms historic Manchester office

Bluesky Design Interiors have transformed a former canalside warehouse into an exciting and dynamic workspace for Well Pharmacy in Manchester.

Combining the listed building’s original features and character with contemporary styling, the team created a bespoke reception centrepiece in Antarctica Corian® from CDUK. Fabricated by Production TM Ltd, the 14m² desk was complemented by a matching waiting bench in the landlord’s lobby.

The design concept is based on the building’s location. The shape of the desks reflects the ripples in the canal water, creating a simple desk that has an organic form. Angles with softened corners were added to graduate between the desk height and counter height sections of the desk and a similar detail followed in the lobby desk graduating from desk height to seating height. The sleek lines of the desk contrast with the textured timber and exposed walls of the building’s interior.

Teamwork was key to the successful fabrication of the desks as the unique Corian® shapes were formed in CDUK’s facility in Leeds, a service available to designers and fabricators wherever they are.
