Justice Mill Lane hotel and office development designed by Richard Murphy Architects. The practice was in the process of publishing a book of their works, at which point they commissioned me to take some up to date architectural photographs of the development in full use. I specifically loved the use of bare concrete throughout the building, it was done in such a way as to not feel cold, and in return was very inviting. I had to work with available light as it was a sensitive working environment.
Here is some more information from their website:
The hotel contains 185 bedrooms plus all associated public and service facilities. A courtyard garden organises the ground floor plan with the bedrooms placed in an L-shape above. The top two floors are reserved for more expensive rooms and have extensive views.
The total office floor area (gross) is about 13,700m2 and is organised around an atrium. The floor plate gradually diminishes from both the north and south elevations and there are extensive roof terraces. The gross to net ratio of the office is 83% And the office floor plate is capable of subdivision into 16 different tenancies over the six floors. , Within the atrium a spiral staircase connects the first three floors. The environmental strategy is an under-floor displacement ventilation system.
