One Angel Square, a new headquarters building for Northamptonshire County Council has completed, enabling its workforce to relocate from 12 separate properties into one BREEAM Excellent building.

The brief was for a 22,000 sq m flexible office to accommodate 2,000 employees. The council’s vision was to provide an environment for collaborative working, enable new ways of working for improved productivity, and also to serve as a catalyst for wider urban regeneration.

The building sits in a historically important quarter and our design respects the scale and grain of its largely residential neighbours.

In addition to being a crucial move for the council, this is an important urban regeneration story for Northampton. The building’s entrance faces a new public square, and leads into a four storey atrium reception and internal street.

The building is designed as two ‘yin and yang’ forms enclosing a central courtyard, with office space, informal meeting areas, touchdown areas and other collaborative spaces grouped around it.

BDP was architect, civil and structural engineer, building services engineer, landscape architect, interior designer, lighting designer and acoustic consultant for the £40m building which was won in competition in 2013.
