The Merchant Commercial Centre by ADG Architecture in Plymouth Devon

The Merchant, Notte St, Plymouth

The Merchant is a bold example of post-industrial architecture providing 31,785 sq. ft. of open plan, contemporary office space of the highest specifications. Externally clad in concave polygon concrete panels set with marble stone, The Merchant provides a sense of history while looking firmly to the future.

Classic Builders, inspired by Plymouth’s regeneration program, tasked a team of local professionals led by ADG, to breathe life into this once fatigued building. ADG provided refurbishment proposals for this 5 storey office building constructed in the 1970’s, located in the centre of Plymouth close to the historical Barbican area.

This included a redesign of all the internal floor plans, building services strategy and extending the building at roof level to form a sky level conference suite with panoramic views of the city.

The Merchant opens visually with large glazed curtain walling and an expansive floor plate, providing maximum flexibility for any office layout requirements. The lower ground entrance provides a collaborative and vibrant communal area, overlooking a carefully considered landscaped courtyard. The bright stylish reception, with contemporary feature lighting, will open onto Notte Street with a new piazza, providing convenient accessibility to the historic Barbican and city centre.

ADG utilised 3D CAD software to investigate numerous options and to communicate these to the client via fly through technology.

Targeting leading-edge sustainability, premium specifications, and sophisticated style, The Merchant delivers a dynamic office space boasting an EPC ‘A’ rating, high end services technology, and stunning specialist interior finishes.

A new glazed 5th floor penthouse provides extraordinary panoramic views of Plymouth. The Merchant has aimed high, achieving an environmental performance certificate (EPC) ‘A’ rating whilst retaining the best of the building’s original essence and charm.
