Two Tabernacle Street
Set within the Bunhill Fields and Finsbury Square Conservation Area, this office scheme in Shoreditch rebuilds and reworks the façade of a fire damaged Victorian building, authentically replicating key details, including brickwork, timber windows, and cornicing.
within complex rights to light constraints, folded and angled roof
planes and large areas of glazing define contemporary, light-filled
offices. The dynamic architectural form is largely hidden from the
street, revealing itself on the journey from reconstructed Victorian
entrance and into the new spaces beyond.

Infill. It’s not generally a word to get the heart racing. But sometimes an infill project has a degree of complexity and challenge that makes it fascinating.
Whilst we recognised the temptation to create a modern contextual building, the playfulness of the original led us to explore the option of reconstruction.
By rebuilding it, we were able to create an interesting journey from a more traditional Victorian entrance to gallery-like workspaces created by the dramatic, faceted form and large areas of glazing.
