LOM is collaborating with Santander UK and global developer Osborne+Co to design the Unity Place, a landmark new workplace in the business district of Central Milton Keynes. The campus will be a centre for digital banking innovation that nurtures collaboration and staff wellbeing. It will also enhance the area with a range of public amenities.
The building will bring together Santander’s employees, who are currently spread across four offices, providing them with an enhanced working environment that will help to attract and retain the best talent in the area.
The eight-storey building will provide 5,000 workstations arranged across four blocks. These are connected by three atria to allow natural light into the building and provide views out. Parking for cars and bicycles is located at ground floor level and in its two basement levels. The site will also be re-landscaped with additional trees and improved lighting.
