Faulkner Browns | 英国CEF新欧洲IT总部
坐落在达勒姆郊区丰富的绿色景观中的Janet Nash House是全球电子批发商CEF新d的欧洲IT总部。该建筑结合了多种工作环境，创造了丰富的办公空间。这使得公司可以将所有IT部门合并到一个位置，从而帮助提高个人和团队的绩效。
Set within rich green landscape on the outskirts of Durham, Janet Nash House is the new European IT headquarters for global electrical business City Electrical Factors (CEF). The building combines a variety of working environments to create a rich office landscape of workplace settings. This has allowed the firm to consolidate all of its IT departments into one location, helping to improve both individual and team performance.
The workplace is split into two distinctive areas, providing working environments with unique spatial qualities to support the requirements of different departments. The northern block comprises controlled office environments for the ‘data preparation’ and ‘software development’ teams. These include cellular spaces, specialist workplaces.
The prominent feature staircase is located at the entrance to the building. This immediate visual connection promotes active use of the staircase and provides a visual anchor to the shared spaces within the atrium. Amenities such as a fully equipped gym, healthy eating café, outdoor terraces and cycle to work facilities, further promote activity.
Expansive use of glazing and the central positioning of the glazed atrium ensures light permeates through the building, promoting natural circadian rhythms. This is also supported by a colour temperature controlled, LED lighting strategy. Views out into the Durham countryside are promoted along the southern and eastern elevations, especially in the social gathering spaces. The inclusion of a dispersed internal planting strategy throughout reinforces this link to nature.
