Lightivity are excited to announce that we have been appointed to design the lighting scheme for the new Santander Digital Hub in Milton Keynes.
Lightivity will be working in collaboration with LOM Architecture and Design on the state-of-the- art building that will be Santander’s new world-class digital hub workplace facility.
The facility will provide a sustainable future for the bank, both environmentally and economically. The new digital hub will support and foster collaboration and growth, while reinforcing the reputation of Milton Keynes as a centre for tech innovation.
LOM’s design aims to increase permeability and access through the building and the site.
The new building will also support health and wellbeing, including a fitness centre, cycle storage and a restaurant and café offering healthy food options. The working environment is informed by a biophilic approach – maximising natural light and ventilation to enhance air quality and encourage direct connections with nature. A sequence of three naturally-lit, connecting atria feature imaginatively planted linear gardens.
The new complex is anticipated to open in 2022, subject to planning, and is expected to accommodate over 5,000 employees.
