[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Buckley Gray Yeoman has completed this 13,000m² refurbishment in London’s St Katherine Docks
The seven-storey Commodity Quay scheme looks out over the marina and features office space,
The building’s 1980s concrete frame has been modified with two large atria inserted to bring in natural light and to create space for internal circulation.
Existing suspended ceilings have also been removed to increase floor to ceiling heights and the dated glazing has been replaced with a full-height double-glazed system.
Paul White, director of Buckley Gray Yeoman said: ‘The refurbishment of Commodity Quay sets a new standard for office space in St Katharine Docks. The quality of the refurbished building, with its strong identity and prominent presence on the waterfront, will strengthen the Docks’ position as one of London’s premier business locations.
‘We’ve transformed the interior, creating impressive new reception lobbies and driving atria deep into the building to create a light, airy workspace that provides the quality of environment required by top tenants. One of the most striking features of the building is the full-height opening windows overlooking the marina, which brings the outdoors in.’
