Aston Martin Design Studio
Aston Martin's new RIBA Award Winning Design Studio completes the aspiration of its C.E.O. Dr Ulrich Bez to have “the best facility of its type in the world, and the perfect showcase of how to design and build innovative sports cars.”
The Design Studio is a stand-alone design facility and took just six months to build and only twelve months to complete from its design conception to realisation. Designed in collaboration with Aston Martin to act as a foil to their HQ building the solution is an enviable statement of sustainability. Constructed largely of renewable spruce and oak, with a sedum roof, its use of ground water heating combined with zoned lighting controls and high levels of insulation will ensure low whole life energy use.
