McKay Securities approached Spratley Studios to undertake the refurbishment of 329 Bracknell in response to the demand for high-quality, fully-accessible commercial office space in this sought-after area. The multi-tenanted site covers 6900 m2 and was completed in 2014.
An overhaul of the 1980s building included over-cladding with timber and render to rejuvenate the external aesthetic and add visual interest. The remodelled entrance is sleek and contemporary with a glazed corner and canopy which contrasts with the rest of the building to provide a coherent point of entry. Internally, a new layout, alongside the insertion of a fully accessible WC, shower and upgraded passenger lift unlocks the whole building for use by all. Contemporary style and clean lines throughout the office space delivers a lasting first impression for visitors.
