In Express time!

The Daily Express Building, located on Great Ancoats Street, Manchester, England, is a Grade II* listed building which was designed by engineer, Sir Owen Williams. It was built in 1939 to house one of three Daily Express offices; the other two similar buildings are located in London and Glasgow.

It has just undertaken a major overhaul and refurbishment to bring it up to date.

Architect Ben Adams said: “The design of the Express Building is timeless and while there are very few of the original features remaining, we hope our plans are true the spirit of the Sir Owen Williams work. The building of 1939 housed the most advance printing technology of its day, the printing presses may be long gone but we’re ensuring the building is super-connected for today’s fast moving businesses.”

Working alongside the fit out contractor Spacescape and OBI; WeSpace was chosen to supply and install the high quality Italian furniture pieces into the main client and visitor welcome areas. Not content with creating a small reception; the large well furnished area has become a thriving social space where people can meet over food and drinks in a relaxing and inspirational space.
