This large complex of barns on the outskirts of Maidenhead was purchased by a company looking for a new HQ for its business operations.
The farm consists of a mixture of traditional brick built barns and modern framed buildings, with the scheme utilising both of those elements for varying spaces. The traditional buildings lent themselves to a series of cellular and open plan office suites, whereas the larger framed buildings provided bigger spaces for assembly, conferences and events.
The complex is entered via a modest glazed canopy at the junction of several wings that allows visitors to move through a single storey lobby into a double height reception space, immediately revealing the building’s origins and creating a sense of drama.
As well as offices, the complex includes a display area, meeting rooms a staff gym and informal break out spaces.
