These innovative workplaces will have a profound effect on Retail organisational culture and individual performance. Masterplanning & Urban Design Hotels & Resorts Education Health Interior Architecture HKR Architects is an international architecture and design practice with offices in Dublin, London, Manchester, Belfast and Prague. HKR’s portfolio of projects spans several sectors – mixed use, offices, residential, retail, hotels & resorts, education and health. The practice has dedicated capabilities in masterplanning & urban Offices design and in Public Private Partnership projects. It also specialises in the design and fitout of interiors for all types of buildings. HKR has been designing buildings and environments since 1992 and has gained award-winning status internationally, providing design-led solutions that are functional and commercial, and highly specific to clients’ needs.

This striking development office development for Telereal in the City will provide state-of-the-art office of London. accommodation appropriate to a world financial centre.” HKR has designed this challenging site Nigel Reis, National Development Manager, Telereal to comply with sustainability regulations while maximising floor space and the use of daylight. The outcome is an iconic 380,000 sq ft building, featuring green-terraced roof garden tiers stepping back from the Barbican. 01 Concept model 02 View from Barbican
  7. 7. HKR : OFFICES HKR : OFFICES The design responds to the constraints of the surrounding buildings and the fact it falls within the strategic views of St Paul’s Cathedral. Designed for large City occupiers, the building creates open plan floorplates and rakes back at higher levels away from The Barbican in a series of stepped roof gardens. Floating on V columns the building is designed to cantilever over the proposed Crossrail tunnels. 03 The building elevations have been designed to respond to their orientation and achieve optimum environmental control whilst creating a building of light 01 and transparency.

  8. 8. HKR : OFFICES HKR : OFFICES 02 01 The Hive This is an exemplar sustainable speculative development, demonstrating that those in the property business are also in the energy business. In 2005 Argent Estates invited HKR to undertake a feasibility study for three sites adjacent to Stevenson Square, Manchester. The initial commission was to provide a development framework which was agreeable to Manchester City Council and adjacent land owners. This soon developed into masterplanning the entire site and the design and delivery of the largest building on the site, The Hive. 01 Building detail 02 View of The Hive from Lever Street
  9. 9. HKR : OFFICES HKR : OFFICES 01 The Hive is a pioneering building, providing speculative office space aimed at the creative industries. The building is not a corporate headquarters. It is a simple, kickable, flexible building which immerses itself in the home of the creative industries in the North West of the UK – The Northern Quarter. Office rental levels are lower in The Northern Quarter than in other city centre locations in Manchester and therefore the build cost needed to be lower in response. The sustainable agenda for this building evolved out of a thorough understanding of the commercial limitations of the project and transforming these into the building’s greatest asset. › The simplest way of making a building cheaper is to make it smaller. › We could not make the building smaller in plan because the plan drives value. › We made the building smaller in 02 section by omitting the M+E zone and the ceiling. › We exposed the concrete slab within the office areas to utilise the radiant 03 cooling of the raw concrete. › By introducing narrow floorplates we were able to further naturally ventilate the office space. › Finally, in order to mitigate excessive solar gain, we created a solid façade 01 View of new arcade running through the middle of with 40% openings to maximise the development daylight penetration internally whilst 02 Elements of a low cost sustainable commercial reducing capital costs. scheme (Image courtesy - Paul Weston) 03 Typical floorplate

In developing this one acre site, a striking design has been used to retain the landscape features by wrapping the building around the existing trees and maximising the setting by making a prominent feature of an existing 65 foot high red oak tree. 02 03 01 Façade detail 02 View of building and landscape 03 Building façade

Extending the building line over the site boundary — We proposed cantilevering the building by 3 metres over the site boundary on 4 sides of the site.

Reducing the area of the core — 03 Statutorily, an office building of this height will require two escape stairs and cores. It became apparent that to maximise the development area on such a small site, a one escape stair and core solution would be needed. Together with Arup Fire, HKR devised an ingenious solution of one escape core which has three exit points – a first for a UK building. 04 The proposed core arrangement maximises the development area, allows the floorplate 01 View on approach to city centre to split for tenancies and maximises 02 Day one concept sketch of massing prime space within the floorplate - overall, 03 Day one concept sketch - how do we design maximising value through technical a single core building? understanding. 04 Final resolution plan

HKR’s design is being developed by Coolbrook Ltd and is currently under construction, due for completion in 2009. High specification materials are being used throughout both externally and internally with natural stone, polyester powder coated aluminium, stainless steel, glass and copper. The development consists of two blocks 02 with floors varying from five to seven over a joint lower ground landscaped podium level, with basement level below providing 82 car park spaces. The floorplate of each block is designed for maximum natural light, future flexibility for sub-division and with generous floor to ceiling heights. 01 View from Burlington Road 02 Ground floorplate 03 Interior view north of Block 1 atrium
  15. 15. HKR : OFFICES HKR : OFFICES Overall, these buildings have been designed with sustainability and energy efficiency as a core consideration. Depending on the orientation there are triple skin façades with an opaque of fritted outer skin or angled aluminium external vertical fins which, used in tandem with the high performance glass specified throughout, provide a comfortable working environment and reduce requirement for mechanical heating and venting.

Pelham House is a commercial office across three floors around a three storey glazed entry hall. The desire to keep the existing mature trees on the site presented a particular challenge on this project. The office space is designed to maximise the frontage and presence to the public space fronting the building. The result is a landmark headquarters building with an entirely practical and flexible net floor area in keeping with the specific requirements of the demanding project brief. 01 View across courtyard 02 View across courtyard
