Entopia Building - Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership
- Shortlisted for Mixology Award 2023, Positive Impact and Workplace -
- Winner of AJ100 Award 2023, Collaboration Project of the Year -
Our recently completed project, the Entopia Building, is a retrofit of a 1930s former telephone exchange, creating a new home for the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL). We took on a stimulating and technically challenging role with the interior design, which satisfied both stringent sustainability and Wellness criteria – while making sure the space is uplifting, joyful and reflected our client’s ambitions and mission.
Our role included space planning, interior design, bespoke furniture design, specification of furniture and finishes, as well as wayfinding and artwork.
This project aimed to achieve multiple sustainable building certifications, including BREEAM Outstanding, the Passivhaus ‘EnerPHit’ standard and WELL Gold certification. Our involvement in the Interior Design and Furniture Consultancy succeeded in breaking new ground to challenge the industry.
“The team at Eve Waldron Design brought enthusiasm and creativity to our fast-paced project - a flagship retrofit for Cambridge. Their expertise has helped us embrace new ideas and opportunities for the greatest possible impact in this inspirational space dedicated to sustainability and inclusion.”
Clare Shine, CEO and Director of CISL.
