Location Basingstoke, Hampshire
Status Built
Use Commercial
Client Arena Business Centres

A substantial refurbishment plus extension, of a derelict, high rise office block located in the heart of the Basing View Business Park, Basingstoke.

Working closely with our clients, Arena Business Centres, this unused commercial building has been given a new lease of life and now provides A-Grade serviced office space for local companies and entrepreneurs.



Office block transformation

A striking new glazed lobby creates a bold focal point and defined entrance to the building.

The drab façade of the original office block has been rejuvenated through the replacement of the windows and repainting of the concrete to give it a fresh look.  The building has had all of the existing fabric and building services upgraded to the latest standards, dramatically improving its overall efficiency.

Interior Architecture

The new double height lobby and redesigned layout of the ground floor, creates a spacious and welcoming business lounge with break out spaces for the centre’s users.

The beautiful interior design by Holmes Interiors brings a layer of elegance to these multipurpose spaces and compliments the exterior architecture.
