Onslow House

Guildford (UK)

A strong, decorative approach to copper cladding, linking both internal and external surfaces, defines the redevelopment of a prominent commercial headquarters building in the heart of Guildford. The updated, massive, glazed entrance atrium incorporates feature walls – including inset doors – faced with horizontal copper panels, alternating in three different surfaces: Nordic Standard bright ‘mill finish’, Nordic Brown Light and Nordic Brown pre-oxidised copper. Structural columns are similarly enwrapped and the copper detailing is even continued into elements of bespoke furniture.
