Warehouse conversion gives contemporary new space to showcase architectural practice’s work.
Award winning architects Jestico + Whiles spent 30 fond years in their Euston offices. Due to an expiring lease, it meant that the architects had to look for a new HQ.
Following an excellent working relationship on a previous project, we were asked to tender for the fit-out of a new office space that the architects had found in Clerkenwell. We won the project on a 2-stage tender basis and had to mobilise quickly to ensure the office would be ready by the time their lease expired. This required a collaborative approach from the outset to ensure the critical project requirements were met.
Working to Jestico + Whiles’ own design, we knew we would be creating a special environment for them to work in and one that needed to be of the highest quality to showcase the practice to its own clientele.
The Cat B fit-out of this former warehouse building involved the creation of three architectural studios, a reception area, a modelling workshop, an architectural library area, and meeting rooms. The works included MEP modifications and a new fumes extractor for the modelling shop, together with drywall and glazed partitions, bespoke joinery, decorations and floor finishes.
The project was completed to programme; giving Jestico + Whiles a contemporary new space to showcase their work; a practical environment to foster creativity; and a place to call home.
