The development was completed in four phases, with nine two and three storey buildings totalling over 80,000ft2 of office space on this well situated park on the edge of Northampton.
We maximized development potential on a site with many constraints, including a flood plain. Flood defence strategies place all buildings on podiums, with external spaces providing attenuation and flood compensation.
Part of the site was cut off by the new main road, but we persuaded Planners that we could place a three story pavilion building on the remaining island site.
The design of the buildings carries forward a design developed for adjoining sites, to give a consistency to the whole. Banded brickwork is combined with punched windows under a clerestory strip and overhanging hipped roofs.
