Terry Pawson has wasted not a single square millimetre of ground and has built a stunning new office building which is tightly embraced by a lovingly restored courthouse-turned-office. The court building, with its cellular plan, was easily converted - offices remained offices and the large courtroom will make a good meeting room, top lit by a roof lantern. The new building next door does not make any obvious stylistic reference to its older neighbour. The concrete frame is clad in a very light-coloured reconstituted stone which is cut in long, thin slabs that span the long distance across the main entrance. The rear fašades are fully glazed and look out onto an internal courtyard, complete with olive tree and lush planting. There are two main office floors and a small rooftop cube housing another two meeting rooms. Because all electrics and heating were banished under the floor, together with the project's relatively small scale, these offices feel very homely.
