Hounslow House London, UK

Sheppard Robson won a design competition in 2015 for a new 16,000m² headquarters for the London Borough of Hounslow. Developed by Linkcity, the new facility creates a distinctive architectural form that gives the new building a strong civic presence within the community, with the design promoting a feeling of openness and creating connections between the public and private functions of the building.

The external elevations are both bold and understated, addressing the adjacent high street. The façades are informed by a singular design approach, creating a consistent architectural language to all elevations. This vocabulary is derived from glazed bays separated by extruding geometric forms made from anodised aluminium, which vary in depth depending on the orientation of the façade.
