Thi office property is located directly opposite the architecture practice’s 120 West Regent Street building, dating from 1990 . It presents a contemporary interpretation of New Town Classicism, with four differing but harmonious elevations read in themselves as a whole and in the round.

The West Regent Street and Wellington Street facades are traditionally constructed Peak Moor Sandstone on a plinth of Dunhouse Blue sandstone. Full-height windows punch through the facade to reflect the varying rhythms of both streets.

The site to the west of the Heilanman’s Umbrella had been derelict for some time and various practices in the city had already tried to kick start proposals.
