Location: Stockley Park, Middlesex
Client: Clearbell, Rockspring, Exton Estates
Status: Completed 2016
Size: 144,000 sq ft
Our back-to-frame redevelopment of this 1980s office building within Stockley Park, regarded as one of Europe’s premium established business park locations, is now on site.
‘The Bower’ is 140,000 sq ft of Grade A office accommodation, built to uncompromised design standards and will achieve a BREEAM environmental rating ‘excellent’.
The plot forms part of the original first phase of this well-established Headquarter location to the West of London and sits within a cluster of ‘iconic’ buildings designed by well-known architects.
Our proposal revitalises and extends the original building by rationalising the internal layout, creating a clean highly flexible workspace whilst delivering some of largest floor plates in the Thames Valley.
The building itself has been given a new architectural form and language arranged around a re-imagined central street which connects to a fabulous new public piazza at the building’s entrance. This allows the building to re connect with the surrounding, sensitively upgraded existing mature landscaping.
The Bower won the Best Refurbishment / Regeneration Outside of Central London category at the 2017 OAS Development Awards.
