Our brief was to create 140,000 square feet of speculative new office space, shops and a restaurant while retaining the partial existing terracotta elevations of the existing building.
Glass, metal and stone were used to extend and complement the terracotta facades to produce a sensitive contemporary design that gained support from the planners. Two interlocking L-shaped forms were created, one solid in appearance and the other glazed and transparent. Natural light was captured with a 30 metre long glass-roofed atrium built between the two forms, to create an inspiring work space.A solid projecting canopy created a roof terrace and reduced midday glare in the atrium. Delicate steel and glass bridges and spiral stairs were introduced to animate the space.
The development won the British Council of Offices ‘Building of the Year Award’, Civic Trust, RIBA and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea’s Design Awards.
