Planning approved for Colloco

We are thrilled to announce that Colloco has secured planning approval.

Appointed by HBD as Architect to design and deliver this net zero carbon, state-of-the-art office development, our consented proposals for Colloco comprise high-quality, flexible workspace across sixteen storeys in the St John’s district of the city. Offering an alternative to the corporate offices of yesteryear, communal spaces at ground floor level have been designed to foster collaboration and innovation, whilst a vibrant roof pavilion with breakout and event spaces will encourage wellbeing and provide unparalleled views across the city. Each suite will also have its own private external terrace.

Designed with sustainability at its core, the 200,000 sq ft scheme will be net zero carbon in both construction and operation and is targeting EPC A and BREEAM Excellent ratings. It will also comply with BCO standards and include a host of amenities aligned with the WELL building standards.

Our design approach is expressive and contextually driven, responding to the site’s rich industrial heritage and local emerging developments. The façade detailing, window proportions and material selection are inspired by the characterful identity of St John’s neighbourhood, firmly rooting the striking blue structure within its surroundings.

A huge congratulations to the whole team, and we look forward to collaborating with HBD on the next phase of this exciting project.
