Our competition winning design for a 1500sqm Headquarters building was designed around the retention of the existing 1930’s pumping station facade, encapsulating the history of the building behind a new glass conservatory. We were the only architects to propose the retention of elements of the original building in our design. The open mesh cladding to the escape stairs that book end the building and the glazed main elevations meant that the building transforms from day to night. The building includes a management suite, a water control room, a general open plan / cellular office space, kitchen facilities, breakout and social spaces.
