Many of our colleagues, business associates and friends joined us on a very hot evening to celebrate 32 years of business and the relocation of MP Architects LLP to new offices in Bansons Lane. The practice's talented interior design architects used their expertise to create a light and airy work space.
Our visitors agreed it was hard to imagine that a doctors surgery was the original function of the building. The original space, full of small consultation rooms and back offices and as well as a dispensary, has now been opened up into a larger open plan area and office space - all on one level. There is a also a meeting room where clients can discuss their plans confidentially as well as a self contained office and flat.
This change represents a huge move from the beginning in 1985 when MP Architects LLP consisted of just Martyn Pattie working from a small shared office space in The Street, Ongar. Our RIBA chartered architectural practice has expanded and currently employs 11 people including 3 architects, an architectural technologist, an architectural assistant, a part qualified architect as well as 4 admin staff and a marketing person.
The photos of our office were taken 'before' our party!
