design which focuses on its presence to the street,
contrasting its brick surroundings with the simple use of
glass, steel and render, reflecting the sky. Internally
industrial finishes dominate the interior of this design
using an industrial aesthetic with exposed concrete ceilings
and walls, polished concrete floors and galvanised steel
finishes. Large, bespoke sliding doors in the facade design
maximise light. At third floor level, a courtyard at the
rear brings more light and links to the roof terrace above
with views across the surrounding rooftops and Renzo Piano's
