Strata: different by design. From its three spacious floorplates, triple height reception, landscaped central courtyard and extensive gardens to the exceptional detailing throughout. It's light, flexible and efficient – a unique environment beautifully brought to life.
The design maximized natural light levels, an impressive triple height entrance lobby and a striking external appearance; all wrapped around an urban garden to it's central courtyard.
Ashby House underwent a thorough internal and external deep refurbishment, with a 'back-to-frame' structural approach to compliment the linearity of its redesign. The existing 1980's building consisted of a dated clocktower, signage and dull brickwork. The original underlying structure and base plinth were retained, and the general massing of it's predecessor is no longer today
