Primark UK HQ・Reading
Following the success of Primark’s International HQ in Dublin, and subsequent projects in Paris and Madrid, MoreySmith has now designed Primark’s 126,000 sq ft UK HQ in Reading. This extensive phased refurbishment and retail store conversion has provided a flexible office for 580+ people.
The design features a bold architectural intervention in the heart of building carving out a 175,000 cubic ft atrium through four storeys, uniting the building and bringing natural light to Primark House. A vibrant yellow staircase connects the upper floors and radiates throughout, with a suspended walkway crossing the atrium and glazed scenic lifts further enhancing connectivity.
Designed with wellbeing in mind, MoreySmith has created a collaborative work environment with auditoria, creative studios, a business lounge for suppliers and partners, gyms, wellness areas and a cafe. This high-quality refurbishment was driven by Primark’s desire to create an outstanding office which facilitates health and happiness to attract and retain talent.
