atrium space, making the space seem a lot larger,” says Roberts. “We have quite a large atrium space with variant furniture pieces, one long table, lots of small nooks, and a big bar table if you want to do more standing up,” she continues, “the idea is that you can share everything at Republic.” Export Building’s basement is equipped with car parking, 300 cycle stores, two changing rooms, showers, lockers and toilets, the facilities for music events, plus a members’ mini lounge.

Both Import Building and Export Building have internal atria with generous roof lights. “It’s obviously very warm, and a nice material to work around,” remarks Roberts. “What’s really nice is the contrast between the rough structural concrete on the inside and the CLT.” The main distinction between Export Building and its older sister is the expression of the relationship between CLT and concrete in the former, with the latter being almost completely mono-textural in its use of CLT.


Roberts admits that CLT is “a bit design heavy in the beginning – you have to design everything in detail before they cut it. But,” she continues,” what makes it much better for everyone, is that it comes onsite and it just takes a few days to put up – it’s like Lego.”
