An exemplar of sustainable, low carbon development based on the principles of adaptive reuse.
Grand Union House occupies a pivotal space in Camden – an area rich in culture, with huge potential to better serve its vibrant local community, and attract a new influx of creative and tech companies.
Our vision for this 70,000 sq ft development, sees the traditional office structure replaced with an innovative design that infuses fresh air with mixed mode ventilation systems, redefines open spaces with gardens inside and out, and reimagines work and living space for a new type of Londoner: one focused on well-being, nature and the newly fluid lines between work and play.
Grand Union House will also be the catalyst for a wider Camden regeneration and integrate the start of the Camden Highline into the neighbourhood. It’s an approach that benefits everyone in the neighbourhood – not just the people who use the building. By retro fitting the existing structures and using low carbon construction methods, we’re aiming for one of the highest sustainable ratings – BREEAM Outstanding Accreditation.
Grand Union House places greater emphasis on innovative design, fresh air, mixed mode ventilation systems, open spaces, as well as landscaping with trees and gardens inside and out.
A provision of new high-quality affordable homes in the heart of Camden with ground floor café space.
Welcoming, green and light, allowing views through to the newly landscaped Sainsbury’s Yard, we will substantially improve a challenging site in need of major change.
With further public realm landscaping enhancements on Kentish Town Road this is a building designed to actively support both the physical and mental wellbeing of both its users and the wider community.
We worked closely with 6A Architects, who’s inspired re-imagining of Grand Union House, sets the agenda for future working and living, while also using a neutral palette of glass and greenery to harmonise with the existing architecturally important buildings around it.
