Completing the successful Brindleyplace development, GHA’s 13-storey office building for Argent LLP consists of a shoulder element on a restricted site that successfully forms the western gateway to the celebrated business quarter and a high tower element that defines an edge to Brunswick Square.
The two elements are separated by a glazed entrance and lift core slot and sit above a generous ground floor with a colonnade.
The award-winning office, which provides small floor plates as a business incubator, was the first in the city to gain an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating which it has achieved, in part, by the careful modelling of its glazed facades. These deploy vertical, bronze-anodised fins as a brise-soleil.
