Buildings designed as workplaces demand a long life and a loose fit to accommodate ever changing attitudes and patterns of work. The more successful workplaces are increasingly self-explanatory to use, low in energy consumption and often innovative in construction and layout. We believe our work in this sector, continually achieves these aims at an exemplary level, whilst concentrating on doing as much with as little as possible, and embracing the raw quality of the ‘material’ constructed or found to create honest, unobtrusive and environmentally responsive spaces and buildings; often reusing, certainly recycling and increasingly up-cycling where the opportunities arise.
Perhaps unusually so for the size and age of our practice we have successfully forged a degree of expertise in this sector, having completed numerous important projects for many of the leading property and estate developers of our time, including Derwent London and Stanhope, and more recently Argent and British Land, with our repeat work for many of these clients bearing witness to the continuing high calibre of our delivery. One of our most recent completed workplace, The Loom, for Helical Bar, has won numerous awards, including a RIBA National Award 2017.
