Digital Hub, Newport
This project provides commercial office space together with retail space at ground floor that will utilise and reconfigure the existing five-story building. Within the reception space are lounge, plant, and storage areas together with lift access to the upper floors which house workspace areas in an open-plan arrangement.
Whilst shipping containers have become synonymous with the modern-day docks, they have also been successfully used within buildings. The building aspires to provide an unregimented, dynamic and vibrant working environment.
The use of cantilevering colored shipping container pods provides the device to achieve this whilst acknowledging Newport Docks.
