Buckley Gray Yeoman wins planning for Clerkenwell refurb

  • Comment

Buckley Gray Yeoman has been given the go-ahead for a 9,300m² mixed-use scheme in Clerkenwell, London

The project includes the refurbishment of a former print works to create offices, flats, shops and an art space.

The plans will retain and repair the existing stone detailing and brickwork and replace the glazing throughout the building, while an existing loading bay will be converted to create a triple-height sculpture gallery.

More than 5,500m² of office space will be created on the first to fourth floors.

The original building will also be extended upwards by two storeys with a steel-clad rooftop extension. Enclosing a courtyard terrace, the extension will contain five duplex apartments.

Matt Yeoman, director of BuckleyGrayYeoman said: ‘Herbal House is an exciting proposal for the heart of London’s creative district. The size of this former print works offers us the scope to create a lively and characterful focal point for the working and social life of Clerkenwell and Farringdon – an area set to be transformed by the imminent arrival of Crossrail.’

The building, named Herbal House, was originally built as a print works for the Daily Mirror in the 1920s. It sits within the Hatton Garden Conservation Area and neighbours the grade II*-listed Roman Catholic Italian Church of St Peter.
