Status: Completed 1997
The brief for this building required subdivision into offices suites of c.5,000 sq ft. This was achieved by planning each floor of the building around a central atrium with one single main entrance and two secondary entrance. Combined suites provide up to 15,000 sq ft per floor across each of four full floors. The main entrance façade looks over a churchyard, one of few open spaces in the centre of Douglas. Windows are larger at the lower levels to increase natural light penetration where shadowed by the adjacent narrow streets. A storey height fall across the site is exploited to provide two levels of car parking.
