An urban regeneration project on the water’s edge, creating offices, retail and community areas. The building acts as a mediator between the various scales of the surrounding buildings with a central open atrium linking the two office groups via bridges. The design was highly commented for its innovation and use of materials which included cooper mesh and cladding.
The project involved re-locating the existing industrial workshop into a new building along with creating new retail and office units which allowed the existing industrial workshop to be converted into retail units. The process involved both detailed understanding of the various businesses and also the logistics of the various developments and programming.
The brief was to create a beautiful contemporary office that engaged with the environment and allowed flexible and adaptable internal spaces. The extensive design studies formed part of the submission to the planners and local residents to help explain the concept and design.
