Shoreditch workshop gets stripped back to basics

Posted by Trevor
June 27, 2013 in Office Partitioning

A Victorian workshop in the trendy Shoreditch area of London has been converted into a modern mixed-use building. With a lot of work having been completed in the building in past decades too, the new design focussed on stripping back many of the more recent details.

The result is a space which returns the feeling of Victorian warehouse, but with very modern details.

A spokesman for the project said:

“Our approach to the warehouse was to restore, reinvigorate and celebrate the historic fabric whilst refining the layout with the lightest touch.”

The workshop, at 80 Great Eastern Street, has already been filled with a modern restaurant. This makes up the basement. There are also a number of retail units on the lower floors of the building.

Work space too has been retained in the lower storeys. These are now just awaiting a final  office fit out  office fit out according to the demands of the firms moving in.

While the original look and feel of the building has been retained in the majority, the upper floors have been allowed to embrace modern architectural approaches. The result is sculpted apartments, which contrast wonderfully with the historical street scene.

For the trendy crowd that now calls this part of the capital home, it will be much appreciated.

It has created additional weight though. Through the clever lowering of the existing  warehouse flooring  warehouse flooring concrete slab, and the threading of a new steel frame, this extra tonnage has been supported.

The lowering of the floor has also made the site more user friendly, allowing for far greater ease of access.
