This 5,000 square meter regional Innovation Centre provides small starter unit offices, sharing reception, waiting, cafe and meeting rooms. The four/five storey over basement building is entered off Eglinton Street by forming an opening, with views to the atrium, in the existing limestone wall which is retained along with other historic features such as railings and gates.
The atrium is the heart and focal point for all the circulation routes within the new Webworks building, connecting all levels with open access accommodation stairs and maximising the natural light. The open plan areas are broken up and are arranged to allow the circulation routes around the atrium to enjoy views to the outside.
Attractive highly visible breakout spaces are provided at each level, with views over the atrium and onto Eglinton Street providing animation to the facade.
