Ashby House underwent a thorough internal and external deep refurbishment, with a 'back-to-frame' structural approach to compliment the linearity of its redesign.
Proposed as a new headquarters office building, 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. 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.
