This is a rigorously ordered and beautifully detailed solution for a significant site at the end of a tenement block. The open plan offices  are arranged as a series of rising, interconnecting volumes linked by a central sculptural staircase. The result is an elegant and refined building which allows three separate administrative departments to cohabit in a way that encourages crossdisciplinary engagement and dialogue, but without sacrificing acoustic performance. It was evident that a shared vision and close working relationship between client and architect were key to the success of this excellent building.
