TOYOTA national headquarters

This project was part of a limited competition for a site in Docklands. The scheme incorporates a six-storey office building with an all-terrain vehicle display atrium to the busiest road frontage. The intention is to accommodate 490 staff and have 580 car parking spots. Other two-storey office areas are located at the rear of the site, and an elevated car park with potential for further expansion vertically. The car park is seen as a fifth elevation to be looked down on from higher buildings. There will also be a display ramp for vehicles along the length of the building, so the building will appear clad in cars.
