Buckley Gray Yeoman completes Shoreditch office retrofit

  • Comment

Buckley Gray Yeoman has completed the transformation of this mid-Twentieth Century factory in east London into an office


The ‘deep-retrofit’ of the 1960s former carpet factory has remodelled the building into flexible workspaces which ‘celebrate its industrial heritage’ for developer Helical Bar.

An additional storey has also been added to the existing block adding a further 1,100m2 of commercial space, while at ground level the floor has been cut away to create windows allowing light into the basement and creating additional below-ground office space. 

The 5,760m2 scheme, dubbed C-Space, sits near to a collection of the area’s historic buildings including Armoury House, Bunhill Fields and the Grade I-listed John Wesley’s house and chapel. 

The project aimed to improve the scheme’s relationship with these historic buildings and the street by removing an area of the façade on City Road to create a setback. 

Matt Yeoman, director of Buckley Gray Yeoman , said: ‘C-Space offers high-quality office accommodation in this fast-developing Shoreditch fringe area. Our design presents modern architecture, with flexible spaces that allow businesses to make their own and also creates a more prominent frontage on City Road and stronger visual connections and links with surrounding listed buildings and pedestrian routes.’
