Construction work at One Valpy in Reading has been completed. dn-a have re-engineered and re-invigorated this tired and unloved 1980’s building by adopting a fresh approach to the standard interior space philosophy, turning it into a mixed use work place fit for the 21st century.

The entrance, foyer and façade of the property have been re-designed to improve the ‘kerb appeal’ of the building. Replacing the existing dual entrance with a portal has transformed the sense of arrival and added architectural clarity and a strong central focus that was previously lacking. The original dark façade has been transformed by adding opaque glazed spandrel panels whilst altering the window bay proportions has lightened the elevations.

Internally, suspended ceilings were removed and the in situ concrete soffit exposed, resulting in ceiling heights of upwards of 2.8 metres. Contemporary suspended light fittings offer up and down lighting provision, giving occupiers maximum flexibility within a modern, airy office environment.
