Marston’s House Highly Commended by BCO


Marston’s House has received a National Commendation in this year’s BCO awards, coming second place in the Corporate Workplace category after having won the West Midlands and Central England Regional Award previously. Everyone at team JMDA is so incredibly proud of this achievement, which marks the culmination of an exciting project and what was a fantastic opportunity in working with the Marston’s brand.


The calibre of design on show at the BCO awards was incredibly high, so for our own work and the work of all the other talented people involved in Marston’s House to be recognised like this is a true privilege. As such, we have every plan to turn this energy towards even bigger and better things in our upcoming projects!


Our concept for the Marston’s House – which was designed alongside fellow studio Newman Gauge – was of an interior that was sleek, modern, and above all practical, but which also upheld and took inspiration from the rich tradition of British pub style. As a brand name closely associated with British pubs, it was crucial that the heart of Marston’s operations reflected that spirit, while providing an elegant workplace with plenty of room for creativity and innovation.


JMDA delivered on this with vast break rooms, light and airy spaces, and a warm colour scheme based on the natural tones of the rustic pub image. Most of all, we’re proud to have created a flexible and comfortable work environment that will be on-trend for years to come.
