OWL Architects - Commercial & Leisure - Unit 44



Unit 44 / PRIMO Manufacturing
Hadleigh, Suffolk


Role:  Planning, Design & Production 
Scope: New Build
Client:  PRIMO Manufacturing
Value: Undisclosed

Unit 44 is storage facility purpose designed to accommodate concentrated racking loads and to allow for future expansion of a mezzanine level to provide office and showroom space. Importantly it is one of several production and business sites owned by the company and forms part of an overall estate structure. In this way it shares communication and water storage services with other buildings and is accessible from both the street frontage and the rear which communicates with an adjacent site. The implementation of a branded corporate image was of key interest to the client and the façade of the building was modulated by expressing the stairwell forward of the building line and creating a ribbon of windows connecting with a vertical glazed spandrel.
