Watford is undergoing considerable redevelopment as its potential for commercial space is being realised. Clarendon Road is forming part of this renaissance and the Edward Hyde building, a large office built by L&G in 1989, is in need of some attention.
We designed a series of homely interior spaces set against the familiar backdrop of painted wall panelling and other domestic details. A new cafe is proposed to re-activate the atrium, and a wholesale refurbishment of all the internal spaces is planned. Externally, the introduction of climbing greenery and a new rooftop terrace completes the transformation into HYDE.
We were tasked with providing a ground floor CAT B fit out for L&G’s Capsule offering, extending the domestic theme to an exciting turnkey office space. The project is set to deliver 75,000sqft of prime Watford office space at the end of 2020.
