“In preparation for a future program of works, we adapted our construction approach to sensitively build over the historic vaults that lead to Old Brewer’s Yard. This was complemented by new retail unit shopfronts, feature windows, and new cycle storage and commuter facilities for the whole Covent Garden city block.”
Tom Jordan, Technical Director, Barr Gazetas
Every floor required renovations and we gave each floor its own character. On the office floors we exposed characterful brick boundary walls, renovated existing timber floors, and exposed the original steel structure. Contemporary elements are designed to compliment the historic material; the reception is lit by a full-height lightbox, an industrial-style balustrade winds its way through the building, and panoramic sliding glass doors lead onto the fifth floor terrace.
