Located in a prominent position in Portslade near Brighton overlooking the south basin and sea beyond this disused two-storey industrial building that previously housed a tungsten manufacturing company, was stripped back to its original concrete frame and the recently refurbished roof structure and coverings.

This extensive conversion provided twelve bright and flexible studio office units arranged around a new central atrium and stair providing access to the upper floor. The elevations incorporate full height glazing combined with white insulated render and a silver metallic panel system, composed to provide a subtle definition between the units.

This project was undertaken when Jim Richards was Director of Richard Partington Architects.
