Repurposing a heritage asset into a building that is fit for purpose as a modern office environment is an interesting challenge on many levels. Services such as networking and wifi had to be retrofitted in a way that did not affect the existing features and finishes.

The re-use of a house with a deep colonial legacy for an institute dealing with inequality studies provides an interesting narrative within the current decolonization debate as to how buildings can be flexible to change and maintain their value within a new context.
