Ian Bogle joins the panel discussion: Designing for healthy, happy cities
Everyday our health is impacted by the urban environment. Noise, pollution, and stress are a few of the many parameters contributing to poor physical and mental health. The built environment can serve as a powerful tool to enhance our wellbeing and create resilient communities. How should we be designing places to make people happier and healthier?

Astrid Garden is a new mixed use scheme in the Prague 7, that will offer over 3400 sqm of office accommodation, 690 sqm retail space and 110 units apartments offering a variety of different residential amenities. The construction of the offices is planned to be completed within two years.

Ian Bogle will inform and inspire at this year’s IPSEF forum in Shanghai with a title ‘The spaces in between’
Construction has commenced on Bogle Architects’ Bellhouse Buiding, located to the north-eastern corner of The Oxford Science Park (OSP). Following a turf-cutting ceremony attended by Lord and Lady Drayson earlier this week, the Bellhouse building will offer flexible and contemporary office space that can accommodate a range of unit sizes. The project follows Bogle Architects’ previous work with OSP, the recently opened Schrödinger Building, which completed last year.

Šárecký Dvůr named Best Residential Development in Central and Eastern Europe
Work has commenced on the first phase of Bogle Architects' new boarding school for LEAF Academy in Slovakia. Located in Vištuk to the North East of the Slovakian capital of Bratislava, the project is for students aged 15 to 19 and was won by Bogle through an international design competition in 2015. Following an in-depth consultation process, the beginning of construction was celebrated on the 10th of October in a ground-breaking ceremony attended by the Mayor of Vištuk.
Situated in a rural hilltop setting on former farmland, the design of the co-ed school is sympathetic to its rural surroundings, responding sensitively to the agrarian landscape while ensuring a contemporary feel.
The scheme is being developed in six distinct phases, with Phase 1 encompassing a group of residential buildings arranged in two clusters of four blocks that include dormitories for 400 pupils and three teacher accommodation blocks. The design of these blocks references the pitched roofs of typical farmstead buildings while delivering modern student accommodation.
Closer to the centre of the site, the learning components of Phase 1 comprise two teaching buildings, a dining hall, a sports building and the EL (Entrepreneurial Learning) building, all arranged around a new public square. Co-working spaces feature throughout, while the EL building includes a workshop where pupils are taught to design product prototypes. The scheme also includes a state-of-the-art technology room designed for teaching computer programming. The sports building, outdoor sports facilities, library and medical clinic will be available for use by the residents of Vištuk.
Passive design solutions have been deployed throughout the scheme, including passive solar gain during the winter months. Many of the buildings are naturally ventilated and some are designed to achieve a BREEAM 'Outstanding' certification.

The newly completed office building by Bogle Architects represents the latest phase of The Oxford Science Park, offering 60,000 sq ft (NIA) of office accommodation over four storeys. The building's design acknowledges that office space is radically changing - simplistic ideas of cellular and open-plan arrangements are no longer adequate as a response to the current philosophy of workplace design. New concepts such as break-out areas, informal meeting spaces, flexible working, hot-desking and co-working are being progressively developed and this new building offers contemporary, flexible workspace, promoting ‘smart working’ and employee wellbeing.
The building is conceived as two dramatic wings canted away from each other in plan, serviced by a single core facing an impressive triple-height 13 metre wide atrium lobby with long views towards the park. Two satellite cores facing the atrium service the fully open plan.
The design of the new building adheres to the guidelines and key indicators of the British Council for Offices, using a palette of high-quality materials, responding to the client’s brief and reflecting the building’s high use values. Energy efficiency is paramount - passive design measures as well as low and zero carbon technologies such as air source heat pumps, have resulted in a BREEAM rating of “Very Good”. The majority of mechanical plant is housed in ‘plant stacks’ appended to the south elevation.
The main entrance to the building is from the north, directly facing the landscaped dropoff and linking into the wider masterplan of the Science Park. Service, bin stores and 80 cycle spaces are located to the southern edge of the building facing the car park, which has provision for 203 cars - representing 1 car per 35 sqm of gross floor area.
