GMW' s prize winning competition entry recognises the opportunity to design the large area of space required as a cluster of building blocks, providing an efficient and attractive working environment which is sensitively integrated with its surroundings. Two parallel rows of buildings are proposed, each crescent shaped on plan and containing a "covered street" between them. The internal 'street', accessible from the main street entrance and the car park below, unifies the whole complex and provides entrances to separate departmental offices. The sloping roof profiles create an interesting dynamic building form offering variable silhouettes from different directions.
