Work starts on Aukett Swanke’s £20m Cambridge business hub

  • Comment

Work has begun on Aukett Swanke’s new home for tech start-ups in Cambridge 


The new 3,700m2 building, which sits at the centre of Cambridge’s new science park, is set to be an incubator space for the city’s booming tech-sector.

The three-storey scheme has been designed in a crescent shape and according to the practice its design is inspired by the ‘sinuous landform of its lakeside setting.’

The ground floor features a social hub, a café, breakout areas, meeting rooms, and spacers for collaborative working, while the first and second floors can be adapted from open plan to cellular offices as needed.

A triple-height atrium provides views out towards the lake and allows daylight into the building.

Peter Eaton of Aukett Swanke, said: ‘Our design for The Bradfield Centre creates an exciting and important new hub for the Science Park, seeking to attract new start-ups, and act as a magnet for serendipitous interaction with existing technology companies and research bodies both local and international. Our design concept provides an internal environment which embraces and encourages a fluid workstyle and creativity.’
