Toucan Technology is a software consultancy that services large multi national companies. The brief called for a cost effective office building of 500m2, which would reflect the company’s ethos of innovation, competence and professionalism. The building is conceived as a “high tech” pavilion, set in a landscaped garden. The steel structure is expressed externally, and supports a large overhanging roof. This deep overhang, coupled with tinted glass, eliminates solar glare on the workstations, and the need for window blinds. Open plan offices are located on the first floor, with more cellular offices and meeting rooms on the ground floor, all arranged around a central stair core.
