Designed by London based Architects, Waugh Thistleton Architects , 6 Orsman Road is an innovative hybrid structure that combines cross-laminated timber and steel.
The interior is completely flexible with ‘no internal load bearing walls and minimal internal columns,’ meaning the whole space can effectively be reconfigured overnight. The six-storey building which overlooks the Regents canal, was created for Storey, developer British Land 's flexible workspace company, and contains 34,000 sq.ft of office space.
“The driving principle of the design was zero waste construction, and the building can ultimately be demounted. Every element of the construction has been considered to ensure as much as possible can be reused or recycled once the building reaches the end of its useful life. The structure is bolted together and applied elements such as SIP panels, cladding, timber decking, steel balustrades etc, can all be detached and reused.”
Our Round Lightplane 3 and Lightrod were selected for this design.
