Commercial Translation When we think of office architecture what springs to mind are slick glass boxes, designed by big name architects - but there is another side to workplace design. Here we look at three examples by Cambridge based architects, which transform places to suit changing commercial needs. Cowper Griffith and Fieldon + Mawson provide an overview of two commerical projects, one near Cambridge station and one in a village between Cambridge and London. Joel Gustafsson provides D FOLHQW DQG HQJLQHHU·V YLHZ RI 0D[ )RUGKDP·V move to a new office on 6W$QGUHZ·V6WUHHW 0D[)RUGKDP·V6W$QGUHZ·V+RXVHRIÃ&#x20AC;FH3KRWR*Z\OLP6WLOO

A need to move from their current office lead them to engage in a search for new premises and, with the design assistance of 5th Studio, they have retrofitted a new office in the centre of Cambridge. Joel Gustafsson of Max Fordham Partnership explains their reasoning.
