Architects' conversion of an old plating works in Camden into their own offices and studio
The conversion involved completely stripping out the building with the exception of the walls, floor and roof. A gap in the triangular plan provides access to the courtyard at ground level while a new glazed bridge links the first and second floors.
A new glazed entrance and reception area has replaced a old brick structure and leads directly to conference rooms, lavatories and the main staircase. The wings on either side house administration offices, library, plant and print room. The two upper floors contain a mix of partners flats, drawing offices and work stations.
The original stock brickwork has been sandblasted and new timber windows, stained a dark colour have been fitted into the existing openings. The courtyard is finished with hard paving bricks while a new glazed link bridge and entrance are clad in lead. Internally the brickwork walls are painted white and timbers is left exposed.
