About the project
“The i9 is an exciting statement that uses inspired contemporary design to fit seamlessly within the streetscape.”
This is a superb commercial workspace building - well executed and constructed with crisp detailing and striking features. It makes a strong statement at the exit of the station, and the entrance to Wolverhampton city centre.The design is highly contemporary but sits beautifully adjacent to the historic architecture of the Chubb building on Chubb Street.The way the building has been designed gives elegance and form using strong brick materiality to this key location and presents itself as a proud new local authority building.
