The Loungers HQ
Not your average office space
The Loungers Group is one of the fastest growing groups in the UK hospitality industry, and here at Mobius we’re proud to have a long-standing relationship with them. We’ve worked as one of their key maintenance contractors for their restaurants throughout the South West and the Midlands, and were also appointed to convert the unloved space above their Albero Lounge in Bedford into luxury boutique hotel rooms in 2019.
We were delighted to be selected as their main contractor to take on the full design and fit out for their new office headquarters on Baldwin Street, Bristol, and wanted to bring the high attention to detail and quirky decor that people know and love from their restaurant portfolio into their new HQ.
Essentially starting with a 7,000 square foot shell, which spanned four flours, we added all of the required electrics, such as lighting, power sockets and CCTV. We also were responsible for the mechanical and plumbing elements, installing new shower facilities, a new kitchen and adapting the heating system.
Then came the fun part! Once the mechanical and electrical work was done it was a case of bringing it all together, with new ceilings, carpets, flooring and distinctive interior design. This included decorative elements such as period coving and panelling on the walls to create an office which emulates the signature opulent and playful interiors of their other venues.
“After working with Mobius before and finding ourselves in the unenviable position of having a matter of months to totally fit out and renovate new offices, I knew we needed to go with them as our main contractor for our new HQ – we know that with Mobius you’re in extremely capable hands. Not only are they a pleasure to work with and have exceptionally high standards, they’re there at every step of the way to offer consultation and advice. We’re very happy with our new HQ and we’re looking forward to working with them again in the not too distant future!”
Head of Construction for the Loungers Group
With such a trusted reputation for great hospitality across the UK, we wanted the Loungers HQ to create a functional working space for the team whilst retaining their signature style, fusing the old and new. Working within the constraints of the building, we managed to retain some of the amazing original features and character of the space, and transform it into a unique, fun place to work and spend time – just like the Loungers venues.
