Threefold Architects deliver new coworking space Paddington Works
Inspired by Brunel’s iconic station, the design uses a limited palette of simple and robust materials that give the the space an industrial and civic quality.
Following their recent appointments at the National Gallery and London Screen Academy, Willmott Dixon Interiors has been chosen to create a Grade A office space at Riverside House in London.
The project will see Willmott Dixon Interiors work with Riverside House owner, Chiswick High Limited, to deliver a full Cat A fit-out that better optimises floor space within the 14-storey office, which enjoys panoramic views over the City of London and St Paul’s Cathedral from its location adjacent to Southwark Bridge.
The comprehensive refurbishment will create a modern working environment that will help London meet its huge demand for office space. This demand for modern, refurbished space in the capital has seen Willmott Dixon Interiors deliver over 200,000 sq m of new interiors there over the last five years, including the new hospitality facilities at Twickenham’s East Stand and a new home for the Design Museum.
Earlier this year, the company was appointed by the National Gallery to refurbish Room 32, the largest within the museum, as well as updating parts of the existing basement and ground floor areas. Another project involves the refurbishment 62-66 Highbury Grove in Islington, to create the London Screen Academy, which will allow 16-19 year-olds to learn about a variety of film production techniques.
Willmott Dixon Interiors Managing Director, Graham Shaw, said: ‘We are delighted that our experience of working in busy London sites can be used to create a bright new future for tenants at Riverside House. The project will be carried out in a live working environment so our know-how for delivering fit-out projects in live office space will ensure we minimise disruption to tenants and deliver a new modern workspace.’
