Golden Lane

Golden Lane was a conservation and retrofit of an Existing Grade II Listed building in Central London.  The main move was to remove the ground floor creating a double height space, and revealing much of the buildings original material character. A steel and glass conference room is suspended above an open work area and connected to the primary entrance by way of a steel bridge.  Bespoke windows were designed along with custom horizontal glass windows along the sidewalk, capable of supporting a mid sized truck and providing ample light to the lower levels.  The upper floors were left largely clear with kitchenette boxes clad in oak as the main feature of these open office environments. 

My role involved working closely with Amin Taha and several staff members, leading the design effort and construction oversight.  I realized and drew many of the custom steel details including the window frames, textured steel screens at the main entrance doors and interior metal work.
