AHR applies innovative biophilic design principles at The Spine building
For the northern home of The Royal College of Physicians, AHR Architects was tasked with creating a building that leaves its occupants healthier.
ARC Club is a work sanctuary close to home, providing a workspace that isn’t your front room and a new connection to your neighbourhood and local community. 2 of 10 The 2570 sqft commercial ground floor unit had stood vacant since its development three years before, was taken shell and core and fitted out in seven weeks. The brief was to create three zones for workspace members: a public entrance and social cafe area, a collaborative area for group work, and a quiet area for focus. Because the site is open for events outside office hours, it was important to keep it as flexible as possible, which meant no static partitions or doors in-between the different zones. Resourcefulness is at the heart of a design. Nothing extraneous is added to the shell: the pipes were lagged in foil & the ceiling left exposed. Lilac flooring and birch-lined cubes add warmth to the industrial shell.
