Wake Smith

New City Centre Office

Wake Smith, a long established South Yorkshire firm of solicitors relocated to a new 12,000 square foot open plan office in Sheffield city centre. The landmark move allows Wake Smith to take two floors in No.1 Velocity, enabling consolidation of the company’s two former offices and providing room for future expansion.  

About the project

What they wanted:  

  • A company that could “gel” with the firm.
  • Understand its history and culture.
  • Take that ethos and turn it into a modern office environment.
  • Offices that could satisfy its directors, staff and clients.    
  • A more cohesive space with cellular areas for confidential meetings, client interviews and a boardroom.  

What we did:

  • Involved Wake Smith team members in the project.
  • With bespoke furniture being an integral part of the design we took team members to see our Italian furniture-manufacturing partner Alea for a factory tour.
  • Elegant waiting and break-out areas.
  • Frameless glazed partitioning with bespoke manifestation.
  • Adaptation to the air-cooling system, performance ventilation and decoration.
  • Creation of a secure server room.
  • Provided collaborative work space.
  • Stylish reception desk with “living wall”.
