The Granary building is a multi-tenanted building containing a variety of uses including offices, library, restaurant, nightclub, and external terrace café which involved careful coordination of escape routes and final exits. The project involves the internal fitting out and refurbishment of part of the First Floor and Second Floor of the existing building which is a 3 storey high converted Warehouse Building (Protected Structure).. External works include the installation of 12 No new rooflights to the west and south side of the existing roof and installation of small plant equipment at second floor flat roof.
Our design approach was strongly advocated by the nature of the building where the existing fabric needed to be complimented with the strategically placed services. As a base principle we provided a monotone finish and textured backdrop with splashes of colour being introduced by vibrant colour fabric acoustic panels.
As the office fit out comprised the intervention of elements of modern office design into an historic warehouse building it was important that the detailing was respectful of the original character of the building. We adopted the principle of reversibility in all aspects of the design in accordance with recognised conservation principles so that the fit-out elements could be easily removed in the future to allow the building to return to warehouse use in the future if so required.
