Every day in the office should feel like a holiday

Overbury worked with leading independent travel company, Travel Counsellors, to design and build its new Manchester office.

Design and Build

We worked with Travel Counsellors to design and build their new Manchester office, with a core goal of boosting staff collaboration, increasing productivity and retaining and attracting the very best staff.

Travel Counsellors was also keen to integrate the unique company culture into the new office through the creation of a homely and inviting workplace, which is evident through the concierge-style reception.

The finished space includes two floors of open-plan office space with central breakout areas that support agile working, as well as a recording studio for the Travel Counsellors YouTube channel and a striking IT server room that is visible through a coloured glass pane. In addition, the teardrop ceilings in the breakout areas are visible from the outside to create a distinct and unique ‘wow’ factor.

"We selected Overbury because we thought that it’d be a safe pair of hands but we got far more than that. We got a level of personal care and attentiveness that we didn’t expect and a design that was completely on message with what we are trying to achieve as a company."
