The Stanley Building

A combined office, business club and restaurant fit-out for a building that forms part of the major urban redevelopment at King’s Cross.

The building unites a Grade II listed Victorian former tenement block with a new shell-and-core glass and steel building where the lightweight, transparent materials of the new building envelope the heavy characterful brickwork of the original Stanley Building.

In response to changing work environments, the design aims to create an innovative workplace and co-working club, which is inherently energetic as well as calming, practical and efficient without being too corporate. The Victorian building and the new building have been designed to provide a variety of co-working zones with flexible spaces and bespoke furniture as well as breakout spaces. A cascading light feature was designed to illuminate an industrial style stair in the main triple-height atrium space.
