Clarendon Business Centre provide high-quality serviced office space, with multiple premium locations across London. Clarendon wanted a space that was exciting & unique, simultaneously imprinting Clarendon’s trademark style & design within the space.
Two primary objectives were posed by the clients: house their collection of late 20th century artworks and design objects in spaces that compliment, but do not detract from their presence; accomplish this on a primary single continuous floor plane that allows for a graceful aging in place. Additionally, the client expressed a strong mistrust of open plans while at the same time a love for modernist spatial qualities. Finally, site the project on a shallow, tightly constrained and steeply sloping site.
The new settlement plays a central role for the town defying the square through its cantilever porticoes and structure contiguity. In the space hierarchy, the three volumes, enriched by a brick covering, create an urban space where the public becomes community.
The urban fabric, matrix of the project, defies its external and internal areas, designs spaces and paths that continually interact with each other. The different height levels emphasize these spaces and allow them to be worked in section.
