Built for ambitious businesses of all shapes and sizes, Orsman Road is made for personalisation and long-term flexibility. With the adaptable layout featuring a demountable partition system, tenants can easily reconfigure workspace depending on their changing needs. It's a system that gives them control over how they want their environment to look and feel.
The low carbon building pushes the boundaries of sustainable workplace design with a zero-waste approach that means almost every element – SIP panels, cladding, timber decking, steel balustrades – can be detached and reused. Internally, spaces are designed to improve wellbeing with tons of natural light and natural materials and textures to complement the exposed CLT.
Working closely with the team, we coordinated sustainable pieces with the timber finishes throughout the building. Where possible, we sourced furniture locally and used offcuts from the CLT panels to make furniture for the offices.
