The general consensus seems to be that Nottingham’s city centre is somewhat lacking in Grade A office space, creating something of an issue for businesses in the region. Fortunately, architect David Campbell of local firm Franklin Ellis Architects is on hand to help.

Mr Campbell is the project architect for a development scheme located at 11 Station Street which will see the creation of 50,000sq ft of Grade A office space. The building will reportedly make use of modern design within a historical context in order to tie its aesthetic in with the surrounding area, and eager eyes recently got their first glimpse at what this combination may actually look like, as the design specifications have now been unveiled.

Mr Campbell said of the development and its design, “The location for this scheme was the primary design driver for us as it’s based in the station conservation area and our plans mean it will have a high quality public face onto Station Street.

During the design phase, we were keen to respect the scale, rhythm and materiality of the surrounding buildings and historic streetscape in this area, whilst trying to create a high quality and contemporary finish to the elevations through the use of clean lines.

“The use of continuous glass façade at ground level looking onto the newly pedestrianised Station Street, introduces a new, open and dynamic section to the street scene, which was previously void of activity.”

The offices are being delivered by Nottingham-based property management company Bildurn, and will incorporate a double height foyer, scenic rooftop terrace, and stunning views of the city and historic castle. The premises will also include secure parking, cycle storage facilities, and charging points for electric cars. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper levels will be included so as to provide those working within adequate access to natural light, which has been shown by countless studies to improve upon performance and productivity.

David Franklin, partner and design director at Franklin Ellis Architects and project lead, commented, “Being such a high-profile site and ambitious project, we are proud to have been chosen by Bildurn to help deliver its vision.

“The City Council has played an important role in enabling this development, following its recent upgrade of Station Street and the surrounding area. We have created a modern building that sits perfectly in its historic surroundings which we believe will be a catalyst for further future development in the area.

“This Grade A office scheme has been designed with busy yet discerning professionals in mind and the layout and facilities it will offer reflects that. It is in the ideal location for transport connections and the renovation of Nottingham’s train station and the public realm around it puts this area in popular demand for firms looking for a modern space in Nottingham city centre.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the designs come to life and the newly refurbished surrounding area, which will bring more businesses from around the UK into Nottingham.”
