J’adore Models HQ
(Back of House)
Client: J’adore Models
Area: 225 m2
A new, multi-award-winning
HQ for J’adore Models - a Manchester-based agency with a global high-street-to-catwalk client list, a boundary-pushing diverse reputation, 20-strong internal team and over 250 models on its books.
The existing 347 m2 Ancoats property necessitated substantial building reparations and new front- and back-of-house entrances to create a perfect interior canvas.
The core requirements were for a high-impact environment - on a par with its clients’ offices – and a space people were excited to visit and work in, enhancing wellbeing and helping recruit the best talent.
Front-of-house was to be a co-working environment, visitor meeting space and creative café with a welcoming reception, while the back-of-house had to be just as high-quality to ensure staff felt truly valued.
The aesthetic was ‘spacious and relaxed with a New York loft/industrial vibe’, punctuated by natural materials and planting.
