Research offices in this 20,000sqm new building for Rolls Royce are designed as open plan, with the top floor as a continuous workspace where teams can create and define their own zones; allowing evolution of team types and sizes.
A winter garden along the south and east elevation contains the reception, exhibition and café, connected to an active landscape in front of the building which supports outdoor meetings, recreation and relaxation. The winter garden can be used for a variety of events, day and night.
Arriving in the winter garden you see a lofty, sun-filled space formed of a timber structure overlooked by meeting rooms. Generous staircases lead to the ‘Hanger’, the central collaborative space. Covered by an elegant large-span timber partially glazed roof, creating a column-free, daylit space below, the Hanger is a vital space kitted out with practical furniture and equipment to support a variety of work modes and events, including ‘town hall’ meetings.
