MKA were approached by John Wainwright & Co Ltd, Moons Hill Quarry in 2012 and asked to extend their existing head office, whilst at the same time providing a new confident and forward-thinking image for their business.

Following a design development process, the construction was split into 5 Phases of work. On completion of Phases 4, Phase 5 was the refurbishment of the existing Reception Area and associated spaces. MKA’s response was to address the functional issues and space planning whilst improving the lighting (all LED), heating, acoustic performance and linking the outside with the inside through material continuity.

Horizontal Cedar boards were reduced in size, from their use outside, and used internally to create a secret acoustic wall & ceiling.


John Wainwright & Co Ltd advised us that the outcome is ‘simply stunning’
