BDN provided architectural services for the office refurbishment of Creo Communications’ head office. The Grade II listed Victorian House is located on Foyle Street, in the Sunniside area of Sunderland. During the 20th Century the building had been poorly adapted to office use, with the introduction of modern partitions and suspended ceilings.
Sunderland based communications company CREO COMMS purchased the building in 2019 with the ambition of creating a contemporary office space within the historic building.
BDN’s architectural design reveals and celebrates the previously concealed grand-scale Victorian spaces and interior features, whilst integrating the necessary M+E fittings and finishes required of a contemporary office space.
