Christie Proton Beam Therapy by HKS Architects
We talk to HKS Architects about the Christie Proton Beam Therapy Centre project.
Creative congregation’ is the latest buzzword for the criteria that helps people choose where to live and work.
Also known as ‘The Shoreditch Effect’, this trend reflects that, increasingly, people make this decision based on factors including busy high streets full of local shops, aesthetically pleasing buildings and approachable neighbours. Surrey’s leading business centre,
Fetcham Park, is proving popular with businesses from the county and beyond in the wake of this new trend, providing flexible premises as well as a range of lifestyle services, attracting a flurry of clients to the prestigious location.
Fetcham Park’s House Manager, Kate Ainsworth, commented: ‘We love the concept of creative congregation as the phrase sums up Fetcham Park perfectly.
‘Since 1999, we’ve offered modern businesses a space to thrive while respecting the heritage and character of this unique building. At every stage we have catered to the ever-changing technological needs of our clients. We like to describe this as mixing heritage with modernity.’
Tucked away in leafy Surrey, Fetcham Park is an award-winning Grade II listed house built in 1705. After centuries as a private home, in 1999 it became a business centre and has provided private event hire and serviced offices ever since.
Offering a variety of contemporary serviced office space, breakout spaces and a range of lifestyle services, including fitness classes and car valeting, Fetcham Park’s six acres of landscaped grounds offer a space to talk through creative ideas while taking a serene stroll with a client. The house was designed by William Talman, with murals by Louis Laguerre, whose work can also be seen at Blenheim Palace and Chatsworth, and gardens originally landscaped by George London.
