This mixed-use building on a brownfield site in the heart of Clerkenwell provided 41,000sqft of new commercial and residential space whilst retaining a Listed facade.
The new building provides four storeys of commercial office behind a façade, which successfully combines new and existing building elements. The entrance to the development is through the Listed façade at ground floor, behind which meeting rooms are located on the upper levels.
Two storeys of residential units providing 12 apartments are located above the commercial accommodation, set back from Great Sutton Street to reduce the building mass. A restaurant/bar and kitchens are located in the basement.
The building was completed in September 2008 and let to Unicef.
