35DP, Office fit out for Workrise

35DP, Office fit out for Workrise

Hamill architects were appointed to provide a complete interior design service for Workrise at their new offices, located at 35DP. 35DP is located in Donegall Place, Belfast.  Workrise took occupancy of the fourth floor offering panoramic views across the city and beyond. With over 9,000 sqft, it offers a generous amount of light and floor space within this flexible office environment.


We are very pleased to announce that Workrise @ 35DP has been awarded ‘Fit Out Project of the Year- Small Office over €500k’ in the 2022 Fit Out Awards. Congratulations to the client on their vision and to the team at Sommerville Fit-Out on this fantastic achievement.


Workrise wanted a flexible office design within their new work environment, offering staff options of comfortable areas to work as well as socialise.  The open plan spaces incorporated plants and greenery  to encourage a greater connectivity to the natural environment.  We developed design proposals to create a flexible and collaborative workspace.  This was, combined with open plan work stations, a large central break out area, acoustic meeting pods and phone booths, a Café area and various sized meeting rooms.  These meeting rooms were fitted out with acoustic walls and glass doors to create a quiet work space within the otherwise open plan office.  The larger boardrooms are equipped for meetings with comfortable seating, and the use of frosted glass allows for privacy during the meeting but equally, allows natural light to be utilised, with the smaller meeting rooms modelled on the same theme.


Natural and local materials were used to create feature pieces including a large planter clad in Ballymagreehan Granite and bespoke seating upholstered in fabric selected from Mourne textiles’ collections.


The completed project fulfils the client’s needs in a dynamic, attractive & innovative space.  The mix of materials, colours and textures within this building provided a challenge both for the Design and Construction teams, however with teamwork & a trusting client it has resulted modern office environment that our clients staff enjoy working in.
