A commercial office constructed from a steel frame and CLT cores and floor plates. A perfect structural form.
Architect: Waugh Thistleton Architects
For: Boultbee Brooks Real Estate/Storey British Land
The building champions the use of sustainable materials and explores the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle.
Built using an innovative hybrid structure which combines CLT and steel, the building can ultimately be demounted and repurposed. The hybrid design also allowed for the development of a scheme with very few internal columns resulting in a highly flexible office space.
As well as exploiting the structural properties of each material, this system ensured fast and precise construction, maximising floor to ceiling heights and offered exceptional adaptability.
In all, OR6 is a ground-breaking superstructure with outstanding green credentials.
