BDG uses natural materials with a clinical twist at Tate & Lyle’s new office
The data-backed design by BDG reflects Tate & Lyle’s determination to implement a radically different way of working.
Kinrise has bought the 34,000 sq ft Victorian warehousing at 49 East Road, London N1 – north of Silicon Roundabout – in a £25m deal. The London arrival comes after a two year search for appropriate premises.
“There’s, great natural light and volume of space; elements synonymous with all of our properties. We plan to apply the signature Kinrise design ethos, stripping back the modern decoration to reveal and showcase striking Victorian roots. We will be upgrading the building into a Grade A office space full of character,” said Sam Lawson Johnston, co-founder of Kinrise.
Kinrise also bought 1-3 Trevelyan Square in Leeds, split across 1 Trevelyan Square, a seven-storey 53,688 sq ft building, and Ambler House at 2-3 Trevelyan Square, which offers 19,890 sq.ft of newly refurbished, high specification office space behind a Grade II listed façade. They paid £15.3m. The site joins 34 Boar Lane, Kinrise’s environmentally-friendly workspace.
Kinrise bosses said the firm is also looking at further sites in Bristol and Brighton.
