See the amazing Cheltenham offices with an avenue of hammocks and a skateboard 'freeway'

A beauty brand has moved into extraordinary new offices at The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham that feature designer hammocks and a skateboard 'freeway'.

SLG has has previously split its 120-strong workforce between sites in Cheltenham and Gloucester.

It sold its manufacturing division in 2018 and now focuses on its operation on a portfolio of high-fashion beauty brands aimed at millennials.

And now it has custom-fitted offices to match.

The 30,000 sq ft premises named Studio 19 is the largest open-plan office in the south west.

Designed by the in-house creative team at SLG and built by London-based interior design firm Modus Workspace it takes inspiration of a New York loft space.

What the company call a "dramatic space" includes a diner bar break-out area complete with palm trees and a pin ball machine.

The walls are adorned with street art murals while graffiti features on the ceilings and there is a bleachers style event space complete with a vast media wall.

Staff are also able to sit in hammocks imported from Brazil, while the skateboard freeway runs the full length of the office.

SLG CEO Miles Dunkley said that the creatively-designed new office space reflected the company's ideologies.

He said "We are really pleased to have broken the mould in terms of how a regional interior space should be executed.

"The aim was to create an inspiring alternative world for our staff and reward their amazing work with an amazing office environment.

"Staff well-being, fulfilment and motivation is a huge priority for us, as is a love of design and beauty. Studio 19 is really a reflection of those ideologies."

SLG was founded in 1985 in Gloucestershier by Miles Dunkley's parents Graham and Bobbie Dunkley making cosmetic sponges and powder puffs.

The company has grown into an international player with distribution in 38 countries who turned over £34million in 2018.
