Buro Happold’s giant Christmas advent calendar

If you’ve been wondering our giant advent calendar is all about, it’s the brainchild of new Bath-based Partner Claire Smith. “It has always struck me that our beautiful building, that sits in the heart of Bath Quays, looks like an advent calendar. When I counted the windows and there were 24, the decision was made!”

Claire’s vision was brought to life by designer Steve Jennings, with the professional expertise of Senior Lighting Designer Amy Rennie and the practical support of architectural LED lighting specialists acdc.

The project is very much in keeping with Buro Happold’s tradition of developing contemporary solutions for historical interest, and hints at the hive of creativity working away behind the windows. Keep an eye on Twitter every day on the run-up to Christmas – we’ll be introducing some of the amazing people who work here.

The calendar can be seen 24/7 but is at its best once darkness falls. It is our small thank you gesture to Bath, the city where Buro Happold was founded more than 40 years ago.
