  • Address: Shepherdess Walk, Hoxton, London, N1
    Client: Schroders

    Wenlock Works is a major refurbishment of an existing 6-storey 1980s office building in the heart of Shoreditch. Two new storeys at roof level and an 8-storey rear extension will provide approx. 46,600 sqft of additional floor space. A new main office entrance and flexible units at street level are framed by high quality dark roman brick with the retained brickwork above painted white. Internally the original concrete soffits and columns are to be exposed. Air is to be supplied through a raised access floor and circulated through soffit mounted FCUs, screened in a central zone above an expanded mesh raft. The existing cores have been extensively reconfigured with a new central main core, incorporating a bank of four passenger lifts and new contemporary styled ‘superloos’. New cycle and shower facilities are provided at lower-ground floor, accessed via a landscaped courtyard to the rear of the building.
