About Music Sales, Bury St Edmonds
As part of a phased refurbishment of their existing distribution centre, we re-clad and reconfigured the offices for music publishing company Music Sales. The existing façades and roof were over clad and windows replaced to improve thermal performance and energy efficiency as well as modernising the buildings appearance.
At the main entrance, we introduced a fully glazed curtain walling at both the ground and first floor levels to bring natural light into the deep plan, newly reconfigured reception and executive office spaces. The enlarged reception area features a curved Corian desk, bespoke joinery and new meeting rooms.
Externally a free-standing red rendered wall and new paving are combined with a range of lighting features to create a striking and distinctive entrance that is in keeping with Music Sales' brand identity.
Storey height glazing was also introduced to the canteen which was increased in size to better accommodate staff numbers. The glazing provides a connection with the new external terrace whilst improving the internal environment.
