The masterplan rejects the traditional office park model of individual plots in favour of creating a collegiate campus more in keeping with the aspirations for collaborative working of the high-tech business community. The new offices have been arranged around a shared plaza which is orientated in alignment with the central axis of the aircraft hangar, creating a sculptural spine to the new masterplan.
Each workplace building features a double-height corner entrance facing onto the new central square, providing presence and a sense of arrival. The stepped building line creates a variety of external spaces along the new street and allows glimpses along the axial route towards a listed airship hangar at the heart of the park.
