About the project
Client: Lochfield Park Housing Association
Form of contract: Traditional
Project value: £0.7m
Following a competitive procurement process, MAST was appointed to develop this 2 storey project. This space was to be occupied by staff and the public, and so needed to project a sense of place and community. Our design proposal was mindful of creating an office location that was inviting and performed as a vibrant public space as well as a work environment.
The office itself spanned over 2 storeys, with public and committee facilities occupying the ground floor and open plan staff areas on the first. We aimed to meet, where possible, the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and provide a space accessible to all. To create a sense of identity and continuity we looked to the neighbouring housing development, opting for facing brick and cladding panels that mirrored our surroundings.
