Orega Tootal Building

In the heart of Manchester’s bustling city center, Orega, a trailblazer in flexible workspace solutions, identified a growing demand for premium private offices. The Tootal Buildings, nestled in the vibrant Knowledge Corridor, presented a unique opportunity for Orega to craft a cutting-edge office environment tailored to the burgeoning market for spaces under 5,000 square feet.

Revamping the existing structure was no small feat. It required a significant design overhaul to meet the modern expectations of flexible workspace users. The challenge was twofold: effectively utilizing space to cater to the demand for smaller workspaces while seamlessly integrating collaborative and private zones.
