‘Low Carbon Workspace’ Office Refurbishment, Shoreditch

  • Budget: £3 million
  • Status: Scheme design

An existing office building dating from the mid 1980’s. The lease was expiring and the building looked and felt tired. In today’s market, even if it were in ‘new’ condition it would be very difficult to let. We developed a strategy to find alternative uses for the building, and to make it attractive to a far larger potential user group by proposing it as a ‘Low Carbon Workplace’. The refurbishment works substantially up-grade the thermal performance of the building fabric whilst introducing a new system of passive and active environmental controls. The result is a re-cycled workspace offering some of the lowest running costs in the London market.
