i9 is a landmark office for the City of Wolverhampton Council and leading property developer, ION Developments, who selected our design as the winner from a strong field of ten UK leading architects and urban design practices in a national design competition.

i9 forms an integral part of the wider redevelopment of Interchange and delivers 3,865 sq m of Grade A office space and a further 604 sq m of retail space over three units.

The design pays homage to the industrial characteristics of Wolverhampton’s red-brick Victorian architecture with bull-nose, curved glass corners addressing key approaches and deep brickwork piers helping to shade the building and articulate its tripartite proportions. 

The strong vertical expression of brickwork piers creates a striking yet complimentary addition to the family of buildings at this important intersection which includes the Grade II listed Chubb Building and Prince Albert public house. 

A south-facing rooftop terrace provides amenity space for tenants with views over the city.

The new office achieves a BREEAM 'excellent' rating and incorporates the latest green technology and thinking to deliver low energy use, low resource use, flexibility and low impact on the surrounding environment.

i9 is already home to 150 staff from the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government — the first ministerial office with a regular presence outside London.
