As a result of the success of this area, we are now removing closed meeting rooms on the first floor. We have exposed the old structural ceilings and columns, the new staircase made of powder coated steel and glass has reference to the buildings historical heritage.
We redesigned the area, positioning a new central staircase made from powder coated steel and glass which visually and practically links both floors. We did this by utilising existing ‘holes’ within the structure originally used for vats when the building was previously used to produce Nestle powdered milk products.
In doing so we have exposed the original structural ceilings and columns referencing the building’s original industrial architecture and heritage.” Future plans include improving functionality and use of remaining suites, improving DDA into the reception area, removing the first-floor suspended ceilings and making better use of this new-found space and generally uncovering more of the building’s original features.
