Fostering a strong sense of wellbeing in the workplace

Lucent W1 will deliver office, retail, and residential space designed with nature at its heart. Light-flooded spaces, clean air systems, and green enrichment aim to support wellbeing, creating a vibrant and collaborative environment where employees thrive.

Our landscape and biodiversity strategy transformed the client and architects' vision into reality through technical design rigor. The building features expansive green zones, over 20 terraces, a winter garden, and a light filled central atrium that floods the five-story office space with natural light, homing a stunning seven metre (23-foot) semi-mature tree with sufficient room to grow. Impact on usable floor space is limited through a three-story green wall, connecting the entire workplace to nature.

Design collaboration enabled structural intervention to establish technical solutions to ensure the creation, establishment, and ongoing maintenance of the green interventions, for example architectural and structural design of the suspended green walls and tree pits. Key considerations included plant and species selection, procurement, weight loading, soil type, irrigation, natural light, and micro-climate.

The office space will be home to over 600 native plants, encouraging pollinators and enhancing sustainability and biodiversity. All species were carefully selected by our team who advised on microclimate requirements including wind levels, sunlight, and shade exposure to see that the correct planting and maintenance strategy is implemented.
