Permission granted for 27,000 sq ft of new office space

The green light has been given for the development of new London office space on Chertsey Road, according to a London based property agency.

Architectural firm, Holder Mathias, designed the six-storey office space which has an adjoining smaller three-storey residential and office building.

The building is very versatile as it is suitable for multiple offices or single occupancy.

Associate director at Holder Mathias, Natasha Chibireva, said:” This was a complex site as the building is situated near residential terraced housing, as well as office developments from the 1970s and ’80s. By designing a scheme with two very distinctive elements, we allowed the building to relate to its varying surroundings, while still giving it a unique identity.

“The building signals arrival into the town centre, where its uncompromisingly modernist appearance stands out, yet remains sympathetic to the surrounding, largely 1980s, office developments,” she commented.

Holder Mathias also designed Waterman house on Chertsey Road, a 21,000 square foot office building which is currently being occupied by the House of Commons.
