Former Birdseve HQ refurbished is designed by ESA Architects, located in Surrey, United Kingdom.
The original building harbors tales of penguins and crocodiles roaming the two existing courts in the days when Birdseye inhabited the offices! The external landscaping, including the original John McCarthy bronze bird sculptures, will also be refurbished along with the re-organisation of the surrounding carparks and formal road-side lawns to complete the setting of what will be a powerful ensemble of twentieth and twenty-first century office architecture.
ESA Architects, with offices in London, Hull and Poland, has gained planning consent for the iconic 1960's former Birdseye HQ in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. The existing modern 'campus' building is listed Grade ll and was bought by ESA's client, Green Property, in 2006. The original aluminium-clad building, designed by Sir John Burnet Tait, is very much of its time and a classic example of a purpose-built out of town post war office headquarters.
