dMFK takes inspiration from coworking at Derwent London’s latest workplace

With nods to heritage and nostalgia, the design is a continuation of dMFK’s ‘build less’ approach to repurposing existing buildings.

Collaborating with ground and first floor tenant Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, London-based studio dMFK has refurbished a 1960s building with a light touch approach – reusing and refurbishing services and finishes where possible.

A natural evolution of previous work for Derwent, the new workspace at 43 Whitfield Street offers zoning variety you might find in a coworking space, all under one tenant’s demise. The project comprises 11,000 sq ft over four floors – and each floor is triple aspect, flooding the office spaces with natural light.

The design focuses on longevity and timelessness. The practice chose high quality finishes and materials, designed to appeal to a wide range of tenants. Bespoke furniture, upholstery and joinery have been designed to complement the heritage of the building, and subtle nods to the building’s past include the custom upholstery that references the shapes of the terrace’s original balustrade that has been restored and refinished.

“We have long believed that a ‘build less’ approach to projects like this is the right thing to do and that designing flexible, high quality, enduring spaces is inherently low carbon,” comments Joshua Scott, Associate Director. “43 Whitfield Street is another example of working with a long-term client with that shared understanding to reuse where possible, invest in quality and offer generous, agile spaces that suit modern occupiers.”

The floors are zoned and generously planned to provide all the elements of a contemporary workspace, including a range of meeting spaces, break out spaces, dining spaces, showers and changing facilities and cycle storage.
