Project 3

This project for 20,000sqft of contemporary eco-friendly offices was designed in 2009 by Ross Sharpe architects.

The buildings sit in the formal walled garden of a large Shropshire estate, and are designed to echo the spirit of the light-weight Victorian glass house which formerly stood inside the wall.

The three separate pavilions, share the same architectural language, and are steel framed with a outer skin of oak, which will weather naturally to blend in with the deciduous woodland adjacent.

The buildings are passively ventilated, and are heated by ground source technology.

A tight formalised landscape design surrounds the pavilions, which won an RIBA national award.
