A former bike factory has been refurbished and extended to house offices and business units. Four patios slip between the six rows with tall shed roofs of the original factory. Dividing walls have been kept to a minimum in the factory hall. The extra office space required is housed in three towers and an L-shaped block terminating the original factory complex. Thick masonry detailing gives the towers an impression of great mass and solidity. The relatively closed underside and the pouting screen above it give little inkling of the three levels they front. The roof curves at the back to emulate the shed roofs of the old factory.
