White Collar Factory launched

Today has seen the launch of White Collar Factory at Old Street Yard, the latest iteration in AHMM’s long term research project with Derwent that has explored the enduring qualities of industrial buildings and applied them to the modern workplace. The 76m, sixteen storey tower features high ceilings, generous, flexible floorplates, sustainable ‘concrete core cooling’, and the first use of natural ventilation in a spec office, with openable windows and user-controlled internal environment. It also has a rooftop running track believed to be London’s first of its kind, as well as a club-café space for workers to relax, meet and enjoy views over the city. While the tower is complete, occupied and forming a new landmark on the Old Street roundabout, work continues on completion and fit-out of neighbouring buildings and public realm at Old Street Yard, which together will create a new piece of city in this pivotal location.
