Joules Market Harborough head office
Edge has completed a new head office for British lifestyle brand, Joules, in Market Harborough, where the brand was established more than 30 years ago. The development sees the partial demolition of an a-typical ‘edge of town’ office building and creation of a new 60,000 sq ft structure that brings the UK-based head office teams together under one roof for the first time, in a campus that amplifies the brand’s distinctive heritage and optimises the site’s semi-rural natural surroundings.
