contributed by davidb

This small triangular site is completely surrounded by housing, and the only access is a small driveway. Originally a scrap yard, it was discovered by David Chipperfield, who then obtained planning permission for its development. The project was then sold to developer Derwent Valley with the aim of building a speculative office development. This was DCA's first completed "real" building, after rising to fame doing shops and conversions. The design intention was to create two units having an industrial or loft atmosphere - the kind of space the practice was looking for as a home for themselves. It was so "right" that once it was completed the practice moved in! Because of overlooking problems, most of the light is gained via roof lights, and most of the windows are formed with glass blocks.
