contemporary office block renovation

Arena 100 Berkshire Place

New glazed lobby and modernisation of an out-dated office block in Winnersh, Reading.

Client Arena Business Centres

An elegant three-storey fully glazed entrance extension allows natural light into the building whilst a striking protruding fin wall provides a prominent advertisement location for our clients. The red brick facades of the main building were painted a combination of dark and light grey to lower the overall impact of the building and give a clean contemporary aesthetic.

The gain in internal floor area provides office workers with an enhanced experience including state of the art business lounge. Arena Business Centre were able to take the improved spaces formed by WDA and personalise them with their own brand and corporate identity.

The scheme successfully transforms an out-dated building adding to our clients impressive portfolio of commercial office spaces.

Arena Business Centres offers flexible working spaces for companies of all sizes allowing businesses to upscale or downscale their working environments as needs arise.
