The brief called for a budget conscious building that maximized the built form on a constrained out of town industrial site. In common with the surrounding buildings, our response has been to create a simple rectangular form that has been designed as an object in space. The building is almost classical in form and dominates the site.


Rhythm & Order

The building façades have been subdivided using brick fins and glazed panels to create a regular rhythm to forming a unified and composed whole.
