01 Blythe Gate
A thoughtful office refurbishment to promote employee wellbeing and productivity
Our architecture, interior design and landscape design teams collaborated to refurbish a new office building, set in a prime position in Blythe Valley Business Park. Space and natural light is plentiful to enhance the way people feel as they use the building.
The brief was simple. To bring back to life an existing office building, in beautiful parkland, that is fit for modern working. The 52,000 ft2 refurbishment includes a new front entrance and reception area. Full height windows fill the interior with natural light to positively influence a person’s wellbeing throughout.
The reception area includes a large, slatted timber wall behind the reception desk, as well as a dynamic balustrade that creates a sculptural feature visible upon arrival. Our adaptable interior has the flexibility to accommodate single or multiple tenants, with open spaces for hot desking and hybrid working. With reconfigured floorplates, office occupancy is increased to 1:8, and the state-of-the-art office is now grade A recognised and fully let.
The landscape design takes full advantage of the building’s prominent position within the park. This includes a courtyard garden with a series of ‘garden rooms’, as well as a nature walk around a pond to offer a space for ‘walking meetings’.
