Spratley goes for planning in Basingstoke - images

Henley-based Spratley Architects has submitted this scheme in Basingstoke for planning permission.

The project is for a new gateway building for the Chineham Business Park in the Hampshire town.

The scheme's brief demanded that it achieve both 'maximum impact' and 'commercial viability'.

'The concept of the building is based upon a glazed sculptural piece pushed into a solid wall that encases the form to create a wrap-around effect to the roof, soffit and end wall,' a practice spokesman said.

'The site's potential is fully utilised by placing the building on stilts and creating undercroft parking which achieves aesthetic and commercial objectives,' the spokesman added.
