Retrofit of a factory with the addition of office space and an entrance extension

The refurbishment is composed of three parts: an extension to create the entrance block, the conversion of a gable bay of the existing factory to create a two-storey office area, and the refurbishment of an existing two-storey office block.

To link the design studios with production, new and existing spaces have been arranged to allow views from the offices and visitor spaces over the factory floor.

Located on an industrial estate off a main road, the building's entrance is marked by a totem with the Leckey name ascribed on it. Grey paint is used to unify the building with irregular windows punched into the facade to open up the front of the office block.
