A strategic re-think has injected new life into Enterprise House, a classic 1930's Art Deco railway building at Paddington Station. bpr architects have combined elegant modern references with the original historic character in a design that both restores the original building and brings it firmly up to modern standards.
New Crittal windows that replicate the delicate fenestration of the original windows were introduced across the front elevation. An additional storey height of louvres conceal roof top air source heat pumps and air handling equipment which, managed by a comprehensive BMS, ensures that the minimum amount of energy is used to deliver a very comfortable office environment.

The building is being brought back to life after being empty for over nine years, as part of Network Rail’s Corporate Social Responsibility Commitment.
The building has been designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent and is due to be submitted for a BCO Design Award.
