LAIDLAW BUSINESS PARK
The project is designed around a central courtyard as a ‘focus/heart’ of the project, encouraging ‘social interaction’. The idea is supported with a central 3-level water feature to the sculptural stair and lift shaft, a café/restaurant spilling out and the surrounding offices and walkways reinforcing and protecting the peripheral edges.
Adaptable spaces have created sustainability in the future of the building, and the interesting and open façade encourages visitors into the building. The success has meant that local businesses have reduced travelling distances and the ‘mixed use’ minimises additional travel.
