Project Backround


Earlier Design for Office Building on a Brownfield site at Church Street Smithfield. A significant portion of the Ground Floor could not accommodate foundations for Superstructure. Site viability was therefore dependant on the construction of a Truss Structure spanning 50m across a portion of the Ground Floor and able to take Floor Plate loads.

Project Description 


Conceived as an Ultra Contemporary backdrop to St. Michans Church. Extensive use of high spec. glazing was envisaged. Metal fins in coloured stainless steel were proposed to the entrance at Church Street and were carried around the perimetre to subdivide the Building mass into seperate zones.
