Working with Boden to build a detailed picture of different teams’ needs, we developed a brief for their property search, in terms of size, connectivity and visibility across floorplates. Based on this brief, we carried out extensive analysis of potential locations, while also analysing their existing space. The comparison conveyed the flexibility of their existing site, and, through the natural size and openness that the warehouse offered, the incredible possibilities that this space held within it.
It’s not often that we have the opportunity to work with a blank canvas where we can completely dictate the shape of the floorplates that sit within the building’s envelope.
Based on results from our unique spatial analysis tool, we extended the existing office into the warehouse behind it, connecting the two segregated buildings with a two-tiered mezzanine to create one open space.
