Project summary

An existing sawtooth roof industrial workshop has been converted into a contemporary open plan architecture and interior design office with an entry art gallery and reception space. The design embraces the industrial framework and materials delivering a calm considered retreat. The varying uses are carefully demarcated whilst maintaining the generous volumes and sense of openness to all the spaces.

The central structural steel trusses and axis are highlighted as the circulation spine with the original concrete polished to form a runway embracing the age and natural weathering. An office pod and meeting room forms a threshold between the gallery and open plan office beyond managing sight lines whilst providing a glimpse into the courtyard space beyond. White plasterboard offsets the original brick with dark intimate joinery forming private refuge spaces.

The project has successfully maximised our usage of the available space while taking full advantage of the buildings volume and natural light. It has created a series of zones for different uses (art, meeting & production) while allowing flexibility for events and gatherings.
