Sallins Offices

 

Joseph Little, sub-contracting to The Architecture Company, brought the project from post-Planning through tender documentation (for all buildings) and completion of construction of Phase 1 (terraced and duplex housing) and the first half of Phase 2 (commercial, carpark and apartments).   The Planning documents were created at the height of the Boom in a rush. Little's job was to put manners on them and make sure the completed building's at least complied with minimum standards. It was a tough job.

There are two office buildings and a range of office units in two other mixed-use buildings in the development.  The office buildings, set out along the central curved walkway are designed as potential headquarters for regional companies.   

The construction design features stone-cladding with subtle rebate and recess features, and louvres, feature bars and cedar cladding of key features.   

The ground floor of one of the office buildings was designated a crèche: see ‘Sallins Creche’.
