Summary

Located in Islington, London, we restored the historic Merchant Hall buildings to their former glory to provide a large single occupancy commercial office space with the addition of four new residential flats in the adjacent building. The building was once a post office sorting house in the 1850's and now, they have been reconfigured with a brand new pre-fabricated and prefinished CLT structure inserted inside.

Now containing spacious light-filled offices, the innovative construction technique sped up the build process and allowed an additional floor to be inserted, increasing the NIA exponentially.

The buildings will act as a contemporary headquarters in Islington that will stand the test of time, giving way to a fresh community whilst retaining its history.
