DC Thomson Courier Building - Headquarter offices at Meadowside Dundee - Full refurbishment with major alterations to the internal building fabric along with integration of additional Vista Level 10 floor plate, removal of existing Level 5 slate roof with reinstatement of new incorporating ribbon band glazing to perimeter of building parapet and new mezzanine level incorporating full length atrium glazing.
The original 1906 Edwardian sandstone Courier building along with the later 1960's 10 floor tower extension underwent a full refurbishment with major alterations to the internal fabric of the building. The existing level 5 slate roof was removed to allow reconfiguration of the floor plate with incorporation of full length ribbon band glazing to the buildings perimeter, along with integration of a glazed atrium within the pitched roof forming a private mezzanine floor, both of which show respect to the original 1906 concept drawings. In addition, the existing 10th floor vista room was removed and replaced with a completely new floor plate with expansive full height windows providing panoramic views across Dundee's cityscape and across the River Tay to Fife. The internal concept was to sympathetically blend stylised period features with contemporary modern office requirements, where the floor plates were stripped back to provide open plan flexible office space incorporating expansive site lines and visible connectivity between the varying levels and departmental floors.
