Global recruitment specialist expands into larger Leeds office space following “stunning” refurbishment

Design Tonic completed a “stunning” renovation for the global recruitment specialist, Charlton Morris after it doubled its office space by taking residence of the whole of the fourth floor of 34 Boar Lane, in Leeds.

This is the second project the designer has carried out for the growing firm as it previously worked together on the refurbishment of the third floor when Charlton Morris initially relocated from Park Row two years ago.

Design Tonic’s clients include Leeds United and Yorkshire County Cricket Club and they are responsible for some of the most fashionable offices, shops, bars and restaurants in Yorkshire.

The refurbishment, which took six weeks, includes a stunning 360-degree bar, the centrepiece of the office offering beer and prosecco on tap and which doubles as a kitchen.

The space also includes co-lab areas, private phone booths, hot desks plus a zen room along with details such as wooden cladding, lush velvet upholstery, elegant voiles, feature lighting and biophilic elements to balance out an overall industrial vibe.

Amanda Cook, director of Design Tonic, said: “We’re delighted Charlton Morris decided to trust in our industry expertise once again for their expansion onto the fourth floor. Their continued growth came as no surprise as they are such a forward-thinking, innovative company and we’re so pleased we could help deliver an office to suit.

“We worked closely with the team to understand their vision and then inspire them with our interpretation and I’m excited to see what’s next for this fantastic company.”

Eamon Fox, partner and head of office agency at global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, which is marketing 34 Boar Lane, added: “We surround ourselves with the best people as we like to think our clients surround themselves with the best consultants so Design Tonic was a natural fit.

Andy Shatwell, CEO of Charlton Morris, concluded: “The people at Design Tonic really made the process work. The build was smooth and communication was excellent. I’d definitely work with them again. They’re a key partner of ours in terms of growth and I wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
