Nifty shed’s not grey

A trendy refurbishment for Shoreditch office

Not a grey in sight for Buckley GrayYeoman when it was asked to remodel the Black&White building in London’s fashionable Shoreditch for client The Office Group – which has picked up on the desire for flexible, characterful office spaces for entrepreneurial businesses. BGY completely refurbished the dilapidated property, creating 1020m2 of flexible workspace over three storeys. After paring the building back to its brick and timbers, to give it an identity, the firm painted the exterior all black and the interior completely white. The ‘Clubrooms’ breakout  space encourages companies to interact, all beneath industrial lamps that, uncharacteristically for the area, aren’t even designer: the architect says you can get them from Screwfix.
