In 1990 we were commissioned to design a small, flexible research office building – Northbrook House – at Oxford Science Park, a joint venture development by the Prudential and Magdalen College. Although the client was initially sceptical of our ability to incorporate undercroft car parking within their tight budget, we were successful and the building received a 1993 Civic Trust Award.

The result was a 30,000 sq ft building on three levels, rising above a terrace which floats above undercroft parking. The parking is well sheltered from view by vegetation and topography, liberating adjacent land for extensive landscaping. Visitor car parking is at ground level. The raised terrace is the perfect security foil against potential break-in from ram-raiders.
