Cost per m2: £2,460

dMFK has modified this 1980s office building with high quality new build elements – clearly derived from the existing features yet distinctly contemporary – using a self-supporting long format brickwork lattice and cross laminated timber structure. A new floor on the roof is formed of a CLT box clad in perforated aluminium panelling to match the front extension. Internally, the building is lined with bespoke joinery and finishes and new full height, low-e vertical ribbon windows, helped it achieve its BREEAM Excellent rating.
