BuckleyGrayYeoman completed C-Space, a 62,000 sq ft commercial workspace on the corner off City Road and Epworth Street in Shoreditch, East London. The retrofit of the 1960s former carpet factory substantially re-models the building into a stylish commercial development with flexible designed spaces that celebrate its industrial heritage. The C-space interior features an effortless stylish ‘raw’ atmosphere and a unique material palette, including a black steel feature wall with an exposed concrete desk and herringbone brick floor. BuckleyGrayYeoman’s design cuts back the floor in certain areas of the ground level and allows more natural light into the basement office spaces. The deep-retrofit of this unloved mid-century factory building offers high-quality office accommodation in this fast-developing Shoreditch fringe area. It delivers major improvements to the streetscape and creates modern office spaces that has already attracted creative blue-chip tenants.
