Bicycle Therapeutics is a rapidly growing life sciences start-up. It currently holds 135 global patents for drug delivery proteins (‘bicycles’).

Pilbrow & Partners designed and delivered a brand-new workspace for Bicycle Therapeutics which includes four CL2 wet labs in addition to associated write-up, administration and collaboration spaces.

The Portway Building at Granta Science Park in Cambridge was constructed in the 1990s and spans over 8000 square metres. Functionally, the laboratory spaces were able to be modernised with limited change to their basic configuration. The break-out spaces, however, required greater intervention.

P & P’s proposals removed a dense grid of compartment walls to increase the flexibility of floor plans, and open connections across the shared workspace and between floors. The bright and lively resulting space encourages easy interaction and discussion between colleagues.

Bicycle believes that the social dimension of work and the workplace’s ability to foster collaboration are essential to their innovation and future success.
