Sky commissioned dRMM to design a purpose built staff amenity building as a demonstration of their commitment to the health and well-being of their staff. Positioned opposite a large landscaped plaza (currently under construction) the building takes advantage of the view across this landscape and towards Boston Manor beyond. dRMM collaborated closely with Arup in the design of the building, carefully composing a unique structural arrangement of glu-lam bifurcated timber and beams, contained within CLT perimeter walls and floors. Internally all the structural timber is left exposed which adds a richness of texture and sculptural form. The project was designed and delivered in just 17 months with the superstructure only taking 26 days to erect.
