  • Description

    74,000 sq ft landmark new office space development, conjured and crafted from two historic buildings in the heart of Clerkenwell. Radical in design and use of materials, it sets a new benchmark for sustainable, adaptive re-use and the development of thoughtful, human-centric office space. It is rooted in a sense of responsibility to the local environment and respect for the people who work there.

    Set across six storeys of high-ceilings and generous open volumes washed with superb natural light, Technique is richly textured at every turn. The architects, BuckleyGrayYeoman, have boldly re-configured and re-invigorated the existing buildings, adding new layers, together with a remarkable new entrance lobby and private gallery, all topped with 10,000 sq ft of green roof. Technique is a truly future-facing development, designed to serve, support and inspire.


    Technique is an elegant but hugely inventive amalgamation, expansion and reconfiguration of a decommissioned bank and gin distillery, providing the site with new purpose.

    The original buildings, though handsomely of their place, were a tricky base material for a bright new hub for creative business. But General Projects was set against the waste of energy and resources involved in tearing them down. It also presented an opportunity, through the smartest architecture, elegant and ingenious additions and reconfiguration, to create something remarkable.

    BuckleyGrayYeoman set about devising a new internal flow and logic for the amalgamated buildings, starting with a ground level infill. This new addition is at once grand entrance, lobby and the focal point of a new community.

    And its focus will be a Formafantasma-designed drinking water fountain, encouraging connection
    while discouraging single use plastic.

    The new infill also includes a new first floor private gallery boasting 7m high ceilings. A large skylight will create a dramatic shard of natural light making the space perfect for everything from exhibitions and events to yoga classes.

    The gallery – occupying what could have been two floors of valuable office floor space – is just part of a commitment to create a workplace environment that thinks about well-being at every level.

    Sustainability is a priority in the construction, and on-going life, of Technique. Three entirely new floors are being built using superperforming glue and cross laminated timber structural components, sourced from sustainably managed forests, rather than concrete and steel and resulting in a 43% reduction in carbon emissions.

    Structural elements of the clt addition are being prefabricated off site and assembled on site, cutting site traffic by 70%. Technique will be topped with 10,000 sq ft of green roof, increasing local biodiversity and reducing the heat island effect. All of which means that the building is set to achieve
    a breeam Excellent sustainability rating, a rare achievement for a refurbished building.

    Buildings betray their history, reward care and react badly to disregard. The commitment, the collaboration, the innovation and expertise required for thoughtful renewal can also be baked in, it continues to resonate. It can be tangible and felt by the people lucky enough to work in such places. Technique is that kind of place.
