Project Description

Office Refurbishment at 3-4 Hardwick Street, Clerkenwell

Working with Derwent London on a 20th century warehouse in need of a sympathetic refurbishment to preserve its existing features.

The original fabric was retained where possible with existing structural steelwork exposed and the external fabric made good.

An upgraded entrance and cores, new WC facilities and lifts, new Crittal and timber casement windows and fully refurbished office spaces offer superbly appointed space in keeping with the original style.

An additional 4th floor, constructed from structural steel with glazed curtain walling and green roof completes the 15,000 sq ft scheme.

“3-4 Hardwick Street demonstrates what Derwent London do best – taking a tired asset and breathing new life into it. We worked very closely with architects Morris+Company to develop a modern scheme for this unloved 20th Century warehouse, retaining as much of the existing features as possible and worked collaboratively as a team to deliver the scheme to the budget.”
