Ben Adams Architects completes Old Street co-working space

  • Comment

Ben Adams Architects has finished this co-working space near Old Street roundabout in East London

PROJECT DATA • PLANS • ELEVATIONS 

The project has transformed the eighties building into a home for a range of business from tech start-ups to larger corporate companies.

According to the practice it ‘combines a warehouse aesthetic with the speakeasy vibe of 1920s Chicago’.

The 5,000m² scheme features a large open reception and bar area which is lit by a five-storey void.

It also includes a workroom, a screening room for movies and presentations which fills a void above the underground subsstation, and a clubroom designed for agile working and private meetings.

The upper floors provide spaces for growing businesses from two to 20 people and roof gardens on the third and sixth floors offer outdoor space.
