As part of the complete refit of the buildings appearance there was a reimagining of the interiors which included the main reception, floor plates, connection space and rest rooms.
The reception area is characterised by a central space with an implied separation between the entrance and lift lobby through the use of differing heights. The higher ceiling is used to the centre of the building to add grandeur to the lift lobby whilst the lower ceiling is used to inform the entrance process and to connect to the reception and waiting areas to either side. These areas are visually connected across the entrance space but are physical separated by the octagonal shape of the ground floor plan. The whole area is united through the use of a tiled wall and full height glazing creates a space that is bright and naturally lit.
The floor plates are conceived as open plan with the ability to be sectioned as necessary. As such access ceiling tile areas are created in the ‘wedges’ of the octagon floor plate with the solid plaster ‘corners’ being used to separate. On the top floor the services are located within the floor void to create a flat pitched ceiling which follows the roof pitch and gives the impression of a larger floor area. Again a clean minimal floor plan is created.
