Lex Vehicle Leasing: Office Project

The concept is based around the conversion of a neglected 8,360 sq m building into a dynamic and colourful workplace promoting communication and well being. The architect designed a ‘social’ heart to the building, providing a focus for approximately 800 people working in the 2-level building. The ‘Heart’ manifests itself as a randomly shaped timber-clad object containing core facilities that is set within an atrium like space.

This project, worth £6.2 million over 26 weeks, involved the complete strip-out and re-fitting of a 90,000 sq. ft. 2-storey office block.

The architectural design for the scheme was the winning entry of a competition set by the client, Lex, and so the detailing is far more elaborate

than may be typical of most office fit-outs. This, coupled with the project’s size and timescale, set a tough but achievable challenge for Brennan Interiors.
