This project by EPR Architects in Brighton sits within a World Heritage Site and has been awarded the designation of being a BREEAM Excellent corporate workplace. Flexible office space that is sustainable, light and highly articulated is built on top of a sloping site near the Brighton Pavilion. The site was originally a Regency and early Victorian development within the Edward Street Quarter at the heart of historic Brighton. Being based there since 1970, AMERICAN EXPRESS sought to develop an more flexible architectural space through large floor plates that remain flexible enough to accommodate their future business needs.

Embassy Gardens Marketing Suite by Arup Associates is the first phase of redevelopment for an area near Nine Elms, London. The Ambassador Building, by Feilden Clegg Bradley is currently on site with the Capital Building by Arup Associates and AHMM is in design development. The design developed to create a simple cube within which the apartments are hung – leaving the glass façade free of obstruction. The upper level glazed box acts as a beacon, visible through the trees. The hanging structure keeps the ground floor column free for an exhibition space. A large door opens to reveal a garden based on an English meadow with a path to the Marketing Suite. The ground floor is clear glazed providing direct visual links to the Meadow and Woodland. A wide stair takes visitors to the show apartments on the upper levels, and then to a roof terrace with extensive views of the Embassy Gardens site and beyond. Landscaping was by Camlins and apartment interiors by Woods Bagot.

This project has been featured extensively in the press, including The Architects Journal.
