Schmidt Hammer Lassen and PTE complete Granary overhaul

  • Comment

Work has finished on this £4 million refurbishment and extension of a 1870s granary building in Barking, designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects

The project, delivered by Pollard Thomas Edwards, is the second phase of the new Creative Industries Quarter masterminded by the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation on a post-industrial plot of land next to the River Roding.

The 2,600m2 scheme is part occupied by construction and development company Rooff, which built the scheme, and another 1,500m2 is currently available for creative industry and commercial users.

Originally designed with a Cor-ten facade, the cladding on the new extension was changed to Tecu bronze.



The refurbishment of the Granary follows the completion of the phase one overhaul of the Malthouse, a neighbouring warehouse which now houses accommodation and business support for theatre, arts and design companies.  

Rooff development director Steve Drury said: ‘The Granary building and the adjoining Malthouse are among the oldest remaining buildings within the Borough of Barking and Dagenham. We are proud to be associated with the restoration and “bringing back to life” of such an important local feature.

“This regeneration scheme establishes an exciting new creative, commercial and residential quarter in Barking, which builds on and compliment the already successful regeneration taking place in the town centre. The Granary building forms a new destination point on the river for business users and general public alike, which links back to the borough’s historic fishing and malting heritage.’
