First Response is a market leading finance provider to the automotive market. An existing client, they instructed Opus 4 to design, manage and fit-out their new offices in Paisley. Set in a historic 19th century mill building, the client wanted to combine the original features of the mill, with contemporary, modern design twists.
Our design team collaborated very closely with the client. The aim was to create a bold, quirky and fun environment, without lessening the impact of the traditional features of the mill building.
The elegant windows were complemented with plantation style wooden shutters and all of the exposed brickwork was cleaned up. The personality of the client was reflected in some of the more unusual elements. These included an indoor tree, a traditional pillar-box red phone booth and an eclectic mix of furniture and soft seating.
