The project involved a 33,000 sq ft office building extension and renovation. Originally designed by Troughton McAslan, the building was formerly the home of the Architect’s Journal.

The ground floor was extended to increase net lettable area; the main reception area enlarged; common parts and toilets modernised; office floor plates fully refurbished including new lighting, ceilings and finishes; and the courtyard to the rear of the building upgraded.

Key design features include a terrazzo floor in the reception area which is interwoven with strands of fibre optic which flicker as you walk across; leather clad computer cut panels within the reception and in the refurbished lift cars; a reception screen formed with 528 100mm-diameter lacquered spheres held in tension within a steel frame; a brightly coloured 3d graphic signage system; and a landscaped courtyard.
