Ashton House was a flagship property of Milton Keynes architecture in the late 70’s, a Miesian icon in the forward thinking new city. Fast forward to 2015 and it was languishing and largely empty. The landlord needed to modernise the space to attract large occupiers and convince local agents, following a history of empty promises from previous owners. Woodhouse refurbished the space to modern standards, creating a minimal design theme in keeping with the building architecture.
