The Workshop is a remodel of an existing workshop into a contemporary commercial office.
The original white rendered outbuilding, which provides the main working space, is over-clad in beautiful white washed brick for a contemporary update. An extension to the space is clad in large black timber panels for a juxtaposition in both scale and tone whilst the unique angles provide a contrast to the traditional form of the existing workshop.
A full length rooflight along the ridge of the roof fills the working space with natural light and rear glazing will opens up the building to face a beautiful landscape of fields and trees. All helping to provide a working environment filled with warm light.
Trees and foliage surrounding the site partially screens the office from the road to minimise the impact on the surrounding area.
The project was recently shortlisted for Best Commercial Building in the Surface Awards. We are looking forward to the awards ceremony in February next year.
