Playdemic, part of Warner Bros, one of the world’s leading mobile gaming studios, has completed an innovative workspace at Orbit Developments’ Sandfield House on Water Lane in Wilmslow.

The innovative firm had outgrown its previous premises and outlined an ambitious brief for the new location.

Working with CBRE’s national building consultancy team in Manchester, Playdemic appointed TP Bennett as the conceptual architects to design the new workspace.

TP Bennett worked in partnership with both staff and management teams to develop the design vision and ADT Workplace were then appointed to complete the detailed design and undertake the works.

Gemma Parkinson, lead project manager for CBRE, said: “Playdemic is a people and design-focussed organisation and challenged us to deliver a studio which was out of the ordinary and indulgent.

“The new studio has a generous space designed to inspire creative thought and encourage a third way of working for staff who were typically desk-based.

“A mezzanine with roof garden uses the exposed pitched roof structure and designated wellbeing rooms, games arcade and multi-purpose spaces promote staff wellbeing.

She added: “This was a really exciting project that demonstrated our team’s ability to work collaboratively across service lines to deliver a successful outcome for our client.”

Mike Millward, commercial manager from ADT, said:  “Working closely with TP Bennett, we were able to not only deliver the fit-out within the fast-tracked timeframes required, but also incorporate a number of novel design features.”

Richard Heap, head of property for Warner Bros UK, said: “We have worked hard with the design team to deliver an inspiring workspace which reflects our brand and more importantly supports the team’s ambitious future recruitment and creative plans.”

Paul McLeman from Orbit Developments commented: “It is an extraordinary transformation of a workspace, entirely befitting a world-leading, creative gaming brand. We wish Richard and the team every success in their new environment.”
