A distinctive and iconic new build headquarters complete with workplace fit-out for an award winning travel company. WAM were inspired by the natural location and surroundings of the site and this manifests itself externally through the choice of traditional materials used in an innovative and expressive way. Orientation and building form was key to making the most of passive solar design principles and the natural undulating topography of the site. Internally the space is optimised and adopts a maximum flexibility approach under one big roof, providing open plan areas, social hubs, meeting spaces, cafes, games and training rooms. This 2500 sqM building won the Kent Building Design Award 2003.
