PROJECTS: MORELAND BUILDINGS OLD STREET, LONDON EC1

  • Comment

Moreland Buildings is an 8000 m2 1930s light-industrial complex at the junction of Old Street and Goswell Road. A quarter of the complex fronts Old Street itself, with the remainder set around a U-shaped courtyard behind. As well as being home to Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Moreland Buildings also provides bases for other designers such as Inflate, Jasper Morrison, Amalgam and Branson Coates Architecture.

In 1996 Derwent Valley Properties commissioned Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to prepare a scheme for the overall refurbishment of the complex. The main aims of this refurbishment are to provide improved access to the complex of office units, to upgrade security and to provide a strong identity to the address while retaining the industrial character of the existing buildings.

The project started on site last month. At ground level the works will include the creation of a new common entrance and the upgrading of existing retail units and it is hoped that the existing lively business community will be further enhanced.
