Three Snowhill in Birmingham was the first strategic Hub location for BT as part of their ‘The Better Workplace Programme’. Providing a future-fit workplace that can accommodate up to 3,500 employees, it is also the largest BT Hub outside of the country’s capital, London. BT needed products that could make the workspace agile and utilise the space, with area to collaborate, as on every floor, there are a series of agile spaces and social hubs, including spaces for co-working that are designed specifically to bring colleagues together and encourage cross-collaboration within the business, whilst still allowing space for focused, individual work.
tpbennetts’s design concept was to take BT’s well-known brand and situate it within the local context, with subtle references to the Birmingham railway industry and canal networks, through the use of artwork and innovative furniture. This clever design narrative gives the space a strong Birmingham identity while keeping BT’s strong brand running throughout.
