Millbank House was designed to provide the flexibility to create either cellular or open plan offices.

A dramatic entrance atrium rises to the height of the building and is surrounded by offices on three sides, creating a U-shaped floor plan.  The atrium thus draws natural light directly into the heart of the offices.  A brick screen in front of the development serves as a modern interpretation of a brick building – an innovative way to meet the wishes of planning authorities whilst retaining a crisp, modern façade.

Millbank House created a new product for Staines – a city specification building for an out-of-town location.
