Ineos Headquarters, New Forest

Completion Date 2002

Contract Value £3m

Client Ineos Capital Plc

An administrative headquarters building for this global chemical manufacturing company provides flexible, cellular offices and open plan accommodation. On a sensitive site in the New Forest, the scheme required a modern but discreet design solution. Working with the contours of the landscape for minimal visual impact, the form of this two-storey structure maximises the benefits of daylight and natural ventilation, with traditional materials such as timber used in a contemporary manner. Winner of RIBA and Civic Trust Awards in 2003.
