CHINA SHIPPING HOUSE
HEADQUARTERS FOR ONE OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST SHIPPING COMPANIES
Project Name: China Shipping House
Client: China Shipping / Johnson Stevens Agency
Services: Architecture and planning
Type: New build
Area: 60,000 sq ft
China Shipping is known as one of the world’s largest shipping companies.
We developed their HQ in Southern England, close to the main dock in Felixstowe, and our design incorporates maritime elements, in response to its location and the client's history.
Timber masts hold the solar shading, and the copper cladding patinates to a teal colour, which matches the companies brand seen on their containers around the world.
The layout consists of a flexible network of rooms, surrounding a core set of purposed spaces. This modular layout anticipates expansion and change in years to come, and the building is able to adapt to the changing needs of the company.
