Advantage, Castle Street

With a prominent excellent location on Castle Hill adjoining the Reading IDR, this building required a contemporary rethink to contend in the town’s highly competitive office market.

Project details

Upon completion, the building was awarded a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating.


With a focus on environmental credentials, the dated structure was updated with a new glazed facade and improved floor layouts and technologies. A glazing structure over the entrance clarifies the building’s position and provides an architectural statement for the simple rectilinear building.
