The Atrium - John Wiley & Sons Ltd

TSP Were commissioned by 3H Developments Ltd, local developers based in Sussex to design this 50,000 square foot net lettable building, to act as a “gateway” building on the southern approach into Chichester. The building is the European Headquarters building for John Wiley and Sons Ltd and contains office space on 3 floors around a central atrium, with semi-basement parking below.

The design embodied the latest thinking of the time in terms of sustainable design featuring natural stack ventilation via the atrium and nightime cooling via the building fabric, all controlled by a state of the art building management system.

The building received a city heritage award from Chichester City Council who stated that the design was “a splendid statement of 21st century architecture and a bold benchmark of excellence for future development in the southern gateway area”.
