Barking Business Centre


Container City was asked to devise a range of options for a workspace development on the site at Linton and Cambridge Roads in Barking.

Along with SCABAL Architects, we designed a village of four equal footprint blocks with a fifth block providing service and access all gathered in a pentagon form around a central circulation space.

The proposed spaces had a range of environmental features such as rainwater harvesting, solar energy collection, inter-seasonal energy storage and heat pumps.
