Bathroom Brands/Crosswater Headquarters by Threefold Architects, London – UK

January 18th, 2015 by retail design blog

Threefold Architects have recently completed the ‘Bridge’, an office fit out of a new HQ adjacent to the Dartford Crossing. The design responded to a brief for an inspiring workplace, which would unite 3 connected companies and a 200 strong workforce under one roof. We commenced the process by shadowing employees in all departments to understand the operations of the company and the pro’s and con’s of their current environment.


Working with 64m x 6m floor plates across 2 levels our response was to cut a slot between them along the back edge of the spaces and insert a multi level landscape of circulation and breakout between the office floors, creating an ‘other’ space. A connection point for individuals, departments and companies forming a variety of spatial conditions in which to meet, relax and collect within.Conceived as a continuous folded surface, the Bridge is constructed from pre-fabricated cross laminated timber (CLT). The backdrop and ceiling to the spaces is a gently undulation surface of uniquely profiled fins and acoustic baffles, which reflect and diffuse natural light from a roof light above.
