Workplace designers Wylde IA have completed a refurbishment of Hartham Park near Bath, with the downstairs restaurant, formerly Jack’s Restaurant being replaced with brand new areas.
Hartham Park Business Park is home to a number of companies who base themselves at the stately home’s impressive serviced offices.
Plans are also afoot to launch a membership-based service aimed at individuals and SMEs looking for flexible working solutions.
Maxine Bennett, director, Wylde IA said: “Working with a building as beautiful as Hartham Park has been an absolute privilege. We were lucky to have some amazing original features to play with so were able to really push the boundaries with colour and scale.”
It’s now a space where users can relax, meet and create so it works on many levels. We’re very much looking forward to the next phase so watch this space!
Users are now welcomed into a bright and airy open-plan casual dining/café space complete with the very finest coffee facilities, free drinks and fresh fruit.
This leads on to a relaxed dining and lounging area. Original floor to ceiling panelling has been painted punchy orange which complements the heritage greys and blue tones elsewhere in this striking room. Zoned pendant lighting throws light over tables which can be used for dining or meetings.
The lounge area beyond has been given a different treatment with darker tones, wall-mounted Anglepoise lamps and a scattering of mid-century statement pieces more conducive to discussion and creative thought. The theme continues into reception and the meeting rooms which boast Eames Eiffel chairs and heavy oak desks.
Sam Thomas, director, Hartham Park said: “The team at Wylde IA has met the brief perfectly. We’re working towards creating a community for individuals and SMEs to work, network and grow.
“This refurbishment is the first step towards us creating this environment – one of functionality, ease of use and simplicity. We want our users to know that we’ve thought of everything meaning they can concentrate on running their businesses.
“Our ambition is to create a thriving business community in the spirit of innovation and I think we’re well on our way to achieving this.”
