Landex Office

The newly redeveloped commercial office building for Landex Property Ltd at 19 Holywells Road was previously a maintenance depot, office and workshop and ancillary to the former plant hire business that was located on the 0.7 hectare site. During a period of site and contextual review it was concluded that the structurally sound steel frame building would be retained and the less significant and low quality single storey extensions would be removed, allowing the rectilinear building form to be better expressed. The new glazed gable has been protected by a Brise Soleil fixed to the prominent open clad frame forming the feature end gable, and a first floor extension has been added creating an expressed and sheltered entrance to the north elevation.

The building has been clad with a mix of grey and orange colour coated rainscreen cladding, utilising Landex’s company colours and immediately establishing their brand.
