Here, Morgan Lovell built new pathways, installed a pétanque court and added a BBQ, patio furniture, branded deckchairs and a ping pong table. There’s even a flat, landscaped lawn for summertime yoga, picnics or BBQs.
If the gardens of 3 Lotus Park aren’t enough, Morgan Lovell also stripped the entire building and installed new flooring, suspended ceilings, wall coverings, glazing and services. The existing reception desk has been wrapped with a stylish concrete-printed vinyl to give it a new lease of life, and a coffee lounge and informal working area have been added to the ground floor. The space is now perfectly prepared for a CAT B refurbishment.
Adrian Norman, Head of Design at Morgan Lovell, tells us that the firm had already delivered the refurb of the Lotus 2 building the previous year, developing the existing concept by Spratley & Partners. ‘Being a very successful project, we were invited to competitively tender this project,’ Adrian recalls. ‘Due to very tight timescales of the pitch, we partnered again with Spratley’s for the concept of Lotus 1 while we focused internal resources on the amenities and Lotus 3 refurbishment.’
