A conversion of a former bond store in Teneriffe into commercial office space for Allen Jack+Cottier Architects, this project was designed, documented and completed on a compressed programme of 6 weeks.  A simple monochrome palette for the new works complements the existing industrial aesthetic, with the original fire sprinkler system forming a point of interest with it’s bright red pipework.  The planning of the fitout allows for generous open plan workstations, 2 meeting areas, reception, print room and library.  A popular feature of the design for staff and visitors alike is the ‘conversation pit’, created by the insertion of decking and built-in seating into the original loading dock.
