Last week, I came across an interesting headline on the BBC about a small number of post-war office buildings that have just been awarded an English Heritage listing.


“These offices show how architecture has adapted to recent radical changes in how we work. They show how open-plan working space for computer-led work came about and how architects responded to the need for lettable, attractive spaces, with ingenuity and a deep understanding of human needs.”

As part of our creative re-use work, we are currently working on an office building in the London Borough of Islington ourselves and are facing the challenges of accommodating all the commercial and technical requirements whilst creating enjoyable spaces for the people who will be spending so much of their daily lives at their workplace there.

It is therefore great to see the architectural value and qualities of commercial spaces recognised.
