Go-ahead given for major Farringdon refurbishment scheme
Developer Welput and its funding partner BentallGreenOak have received planning consent for the refurbishment and extension of its Farringdon Road Estate to deliver high quality, sustainable commercial space.
Designed by Fathom Architects, the scheme at 143-157 Farringdon Road will revive and extend a series of four former warehouse buildings in Clerkenwell. The scheme targets significant improvements to the carbon footprint of the assets and is said to create a coherent new identity designed to enhance the tenant experience.
Rebecca Thomas, Director at Fathom Architects said: “Creating renewed life and purpose for existing buildings is a challenge we love at Fathom. The Farringdon Road building is a robust warehouse in a fantastic location, but just wasn’t working from either an occupier or landlord perspective. Through a rigorous process of research and collaboration with our client and consultant team, we are very proud to have developed a design which revives this handsome Victorian building as a desirable modern workspace which supports wellbeing and has high sustainability credentials.”
