Store StudiosCentral London
We are involved in the refurbishment of a former office block at The Strand, which is being completely remodelled as Store Studios. The building will house a new offshoot of Soho House members club, a series of co-working spaces, offices for creative businesses, an art gallery and loft offices.
We obtained planning for 2 side wings to the building in June, which creates another 5,000 square foot of loft office space over two floors. The side elevations of the extensions are fully glazed with the steel frame structure exposed on the inside. The volumes are in Corten steel which complements the brutalist architecture of the original building. The vertical Corten clad brise soleil shade the glass, preventing the extensions overheating in the summer months, whilst still offering commanding views over the neighbouring buildings and river to the south.
