Imperial Tobacco HQ Phase 2, Bristol

“It was important that the refurbishment of Imperial Tobacco HQ Phase 2 was consistent and complimented what we achieved on Phase 1. The overall look and feel of the space is warmly welcomed by visitors and staff alike”

Carol Harris – Vice President, Imperial Tobacco

Imperial Tobacco HQ Phase 2, the refurbished old factory building provides additional first class office space to complement Imperial Tobacco’s new award winning headquarters situated adjacent. The refurbishment of the existing site had to dovetail with Phase 1, the Client keen that there was consistency between the two buildings in both character and aesthetic.

The high quality interior with its open double height lobby, feature impressive glulam timber beam structures and bespoke Occhio lighting. The project features open plan office space with multi-functional meeting suites and decorative lighting by designer Tom Raffield. The new Imperial Tobacco HQ café and external terrace complete a dynamic and flexible working environment.
