The client asked for a simple, no frills office building to be constructed quickly and cheaply in a business park near Heathrow Airport.
The Manser Practice designed a simple 3 storey building to complement two nearby offices already on site; using high quality rainscreen cladding in conjunction with a sculptural spiral escape stair and full height glazing to create a distinctive exterior and an inviting full height atrium space. The project was delivered on time and on budget.
In addition to designing the base build, The Manser Practice were responsible for the design of the high quality interior fit out of this new office building for tenants British Mediterranean Airways (BMED). A restricted palette of materials and unobtrusive glazed partitions creates a simple, striking and light working environment, which includes staff training facilities, conference rooms and a canteen.
