The intervention enhances the use of space by introducing a warmer palette of natural materials, which uplifts the atmosphere of the entrance, reception and passageway.

The design challenges dn-a faced in 2017 were that, despite its central location in Reading, Davidson lacked activity, animation and a clearly branded entrance.
