Spratley Studios has gained planning permission for a 35,000 sq. ft. new-build HQ building designed for Bremont and situated on the Culden Faw Estate in Henley-on-Thames. The British luxury watch company plan on basing all operations at the site, from the manufacturing of parts and the assembly of watches to the business operations.
Giles English, Co-Founder of Bremont said “The vision here for Bremont was to really build the home of British watchmaking, reinvigorating a historic British industry but with state of the art technology and facilities. To do this in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way was also crucial for us. As a luxury brand building beautiful products the building needs to emulate this in its design and function. Spratley Studios has managed to encompass all of this and translate our vision very well indeed.”
Stephen Smith, Director at Spratley Studios, commented, “Bremont came to us with a truly unique brief and some quite challenging requirements for the office and manufacturing elements of their HQ which made for a dream commission for us. It was important that we future-proofed the building design and so used VR software extensively to model the key operational spaces, enabling stakeholder engagement and helping to inform the final design.”
