Back to Portfolio

The refurbishment of Macmillan House (grade I listed), originally designed by IK Brunel and built circa 1854 for the Great Western Railway, forms an integral part of the paddington station complex and previously served as railway office accommodation.

After being vacant for many years, the building has been brought back to life and now serves as high quality serviced office accommodation. The new offices provide serviced units that are managed by the office group under the joint venture with network rail. High quality detailing was required to respond to both the listed building and the tenant requirements.

High level clear glass connections between the top of partitions and the existing brick ‘jack’ arches form a lightweight elegant detail, whilst providing essential daylight to the corridors.
