New pod works for Meantime

Whilst Meantime takes a happily open-plan approach to work, there are times when a more private, enclosed space is required. But creating such a space in a building of historical significance is far from straightforward.

Meantime's new meeting roomOne of the great things about working in the picture-perfect town of Kendal is the sense of heritage you get from being here.

Walk past one of the many architecturally diverse buildings, meander through the streets, or gaze at the ever-changing landscape and you feel a part of something historical.

With this feeling comes a responsibility to be respectful of the heritage, and to maintain it. So when it came to a much-needed development of the Meantime office, we took this seriously.

Meantime is in the old K Shoes factory. Anyone of a certain age will remember wearing these to school on rain-sodden days. The now-defunct business dates back to the mid-1800s and was progressive in the area of worker rights and conditions—something all of us at Meantime champion.

The workflow of those days of fixing leather to wood is still evident in the building and we didn’t want to hide that behind plasterboard. Thankfully we found the perfect designer in Judy Deakin.

Judy brought a modern yet sympathetic sensibility to the project, balancing respect for the building with the demands of a meeting room. The result is The Pod, a beautifully elegant room which sits like a seed within the fertile working space where we’ve thrived for so many years.

Because everything we build is bespoke, you might not see exactly what you need. If that’s the case please get in touch. We'd be happy to discuss how we can help you to take the first step to cutting costs and growing beyond all expectations.
