Bosworth House is a new Head Quarters building for Stepnell Ltd based in Rugby. The building is designed to maximise collaboration and integration whilst maintaining flexibility where required. One of the key design drivers is the atrium which is designed to act as a buffer for the office plates. This drives natural ventilation through stack effect enhancing natural air movement. A mixed mode solution has been adopted to ensure users have flexibility to open windows but good air quality can be maintained. Night cooling and exposed thermal mass can also reduce cooling loads significantly.
QODA were appointed to work on the multi-million-pound refurbishment of the Ivy in the heart of the West End. The building has retained much of its unique character and charm but was redesigned with new interiors, a new kitchen and completely new lighting, heating and cooling. The famous Ivy is popular with celebrities and people in the art and media industries.
