Our clients needed an architect in Ashburton, Devon to provide them with a Full architectural and interior design service for their Office Refurbishment.

Grey Matter, A software supply and management company, were looking to upgrade their tired town centre offices, set within an old Brunel warehouse, that served the adjacent railway. With a projected increase in staff and a building configuration that was inefficient, Grey Matter approached van Ellen + Sheryn to completely redesign their premises.

The re-design involved a complete strip out of the offices, re-wire and new services strategy. At the heart of the design proposals sits a central entrance hall, within a double height void above. The circulation stair and lightweight bridge link the various office departments in an open plan arrangement and act as a focal point.

The industrial heritage of the building has been maintained with the restoration and enhancement of period features throughout. Adjustable external louvres provide protection from solar gain and are a modern day re-interpretation of the shutters that used to adorn the building. The project has been nominated for the insider ‘Office Development of the Year ‘ 2015.

A friendly and professional practice – a pleasure to work with. Impressive timber frame design knowledge and excellent communication made this project an absolute joy – we hope to work with you again soon.
