Our own Architects’ studio in Reigate, Surrey, has been designed as a wonderful place to work. It showcases to our clients what our recently formed practice offers; design that is rewarding, affordable, buildable and inspirational.
It incorporates many of the features we encourage to be included when discussing projects with our clients; an abundance of natural daylight, thermal mass and natural ventilation. Internally the steel frame has been left exposed. White-plastered walls and ceilings and a light resin floor emphasise the bright and spacious feel of the open office space. The position and orientation of the extensive glazing encourages passive solar gain in winter and prevents the interior from overheating in summer.
Low-level manually operated vents and higher electronically controlled glazed louvres incorporated into the glazed surfaces enable airflow to be easily managed. The play of light in the space and on the surfaces of the materials continually changes with the weather, the time of day and across the seasons. As an office, it encourages a relaxing, comfortable and professional working environment with a permanent and active visual connection to the outside
