A new commercial building provides offices, affordable workspace and retail uses set within a new public realm that re-establishes connections to historic streets and spaces. The form and massing mediate between the taller, formal urban context of Farringdon Road, and the more irregular, domestic context of Crawford Passage. Multiple entrances at ground and lower ground floors resolve complicated site levels and give access to a small square at the rear. The building features brick facades referencing the local palette, large full height and operable windows, reception areas and lift lobbies, tiled washrooms and cyclists’ facilities.
