Material Source Studio, Manchester

This studio is absolutely incredible.

The first of its kind in the UK, the 15,000sqft studio is situated in the Grade II listed Hanover Building in NOMA. Set across two levels, it features a wealth of inspirational exhibits and interactive displays from 35 leading brands operating in the commercial interiors and built environment sectors. It also includes an 80-seat theatre, a CPD area, a 300+ book library, 7 meeting spaces, a co-working hub and a podcast studio. Plus, an internal garden and a fully mature, 6-metre tree, spanning both floors.

Our aim was to work with the founders of Material Source to create a ‘biophilic journey’ throughout the space. This included the following;

  • A 6-metre Ficus Lyrata tree
  • Indoor garden-style foliage set into the floor
  • Bespoke moss panelling
  • A lush selection of floor standing & tabletop potted planting
