californian-style offices in the leicestershire landscape

This long, low, Californian-style office for a healthcare company is set within the Leicestershire landscape rather than surrounded by cars as with traditional business parks.

The open plan building is suspended over 100 car parking spaces. White steel, glass and concrete contrast with an Italian marble drum shaped lecture theatre and a lively internal boulevard.

The Ashfield concept represents a significant step forward in business park design typology. Our design is bright, spacious, and vibrant, and encourages easy communication throughout the organisation. With emphasis on the concern for people, ideas, and enthusiasm – it is an appropriate icon for the company housed within the building, which had the confidence to embrace a thoroughly modern design.

shedkm later expanded the headquarters to provide further accommodation for the future growth of the company, both in plan and with an iconic new rooftop edition.
