Highlights

3-Space took this barely functioning lower ground floor from shell to a CAT A & CAT B modern industrial-feel space, complete with an array of laboratories, taste rooms, brewing facilities, office and meeting spaces. Branding was particularly important and Cara’s ethos and identity is prominent throughout. Our designer, working alongside the client used distinctive signage and graphics in the reception area to illustrate the history and development of their company.

Client Quote

"From start to finish 3-Space were helpful, friendly and professional. Our build came with a number of challenges, all of which they were able to accommodate. As a company, they went out of their way to achieve good design, easily solve problems and tackle on-going issues. When we decided to add other requirements, such as a brewery room, they quickly adapted the design to fit what we needed. They helped us achieve the building that we’d always dreamed of, with high spec laboratories that meet GMP Pharmaceutical standard, to an open, funky work environment where everyone feels welcome. They were a joy to work with throughout the whole process, and we’d happily recommend them to anyone looking to design, build and furnish an office they’re happy to stay in for the long-term!"
