A new building on Pentonville Road that retains and connects the existing structural frames of two buildings providing six storeys of fully-modernised open plan office accommodation.

The front elevation to Pentonville Road was dramatically renewed to provide a fresh and robust facade, with the materiality of the hand-made bricks emphasised; while the facades to the rear yard were rebuilt to modern standards. The main entrances have been enlivened with striking double-height spaces and large cantilevered canopies with cruciform columns in solid stainless steel.

The interiors of the buildings have been fully refurbished providing Category A Office fit-out, including renewed mechanical and electrical systems, lifts and washroom facilities.
