AJ exclusive: DC CABE relocates to Angel Building
Design Council CABE is leaving its Covent Garden offices for Allford Hall Monaghan Morris’s (AHMM) Stirling Prize-shortlisted Angel Building in Islington
The Derwent-backed 1970s retrofit will house both the Design Council and DC CABE. Original architect AHMM won the 1,000m² fit out following a limited competition.
The organisations will relocate to the BREEAM ‘excellent’-rated building this summer.
Simon Allford of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris said: ‘We are delighted to be working with the Design Council CABE on their move to the Angel Building.
‘Having designed the building and all the public areas it is good to have the opportunity to work with an ambitious and inventive client on their own offices.’
David Kester, Design Council chief executive said: ‘This new and more flexible space is a fantastic example of how great design can create places which are good for business, people and the environment. I’m looking forward to welcoming our stakeholders, partners and others to our new home after we move in the summer.’
The independent design watchdog spent the past eight months in Design Council’s Covent Garden offices following its merger with the organisation.
