Alphabeta is the reinvention of a large historic building as a new creative working environment. The design meets the increasing demand for workspaces that reflect tenants’ changing lifestyle and work practices. Works included the the creation of a dramatic new nine storey glazed atrium with cantilevered meeting rooms and a new cycle ramp descending from street level to extensive cycle parking and changing facilities. Office floors were stripped back to expose historical structure and finishes with strategic infills added to rationalise plans and create well-lit open spaces. A storey of new build offices and an extensive roof terrace was added at high level providing dramatic views and amenity for the building’s users.
