Over the course of 2016 and 2017, property firm Bruntwood has worked with dot-art and artist David Andrews, to bring the communal spaces of their building on Covent Garden in Liverpool city centre to life. The brief was to create a contemporary design, based on the famous oriel windows on the front of the building, to be applied directly to the walls. This design we then developed and refined for two more corridors and the stairwells joining them.
We spoke to Head of Property Colin Forshaw about his experience of working with dot-art on the project:
- What initially attracted you to working with dot-art?
- That’s a difficult question to answer as we have been working with dot-art for so long that I cannot remember but will definitely have a lot to do with how easy it is to get along with the team.
- Did you look at any alternative options?
- We looked at a variety of options and dot-art helped us work through them to the best solution.
- What did you hope to gain from the project?
- As well as dressing some bland space we wanted to install some works that would engage our customers who use the building.
- Do you feel this has been achieved?
- 100% achieved
- How did you find the experience of working with dot-art?
- So easy to work with and although they provided us with several options they have developed an understanding of what we will like and therefore tailor the options, making decisions easier.
- Do you have any other comments / feedback?
- Bruntwood Liverpool have been so encouraged from our work with dot-art that we have regularly recommended them to our colleagues in other regions as well as all our own customers.
- Finally, would you be happy to recommend our products and services?
- As above, without a doubt!
