Lab for user research and UX

user research lab

Our research lab is purpose built for conducting and observing qualitative research and usability testing. We designed the lab for our own projects but it’s also available for dry hire.

The lab consists of an interview room and an eight-person observation space linked with high quality audio and video streaming. We’ve invested in studio-quality mics and speakers as well as 4k cameras, huge 65” screens and comfy chairs.

We provide refreshments, we can also organise lunch or you can pop down to the Arnolfini cafe for a bowl of soup and a sandwich.
