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.
