15 Crinan Street, King’s Cross

Client: CBRE Global Investors

Architect: Gpad

Thomasons was appointed by owners CBRE Global Investors to redevelop and extend an industrial warehouse at 15 Crinan Street, in the prestigious Conservation Area of King’s Cross, to create 7,700 sq. ft. of modern office space.

Dating from the late Victorian era, the three-storey warehouse was originally a diamond workshop. The existing structure of the tired building was taken back to a shell and the lift, staircase and cloakrooms were relocated to open the space.

The space has been extended with the addition of a new fourth floor including a private roof terrace. Office or showroom space is provided on the ground and lower ground floors, while the upper floors are designed as large open-plan spaces with sash picture windows that span three levels.

Original features – such as brickwork, and cast-iron columns which support the steel beams – have been retained and exposed to celebrate the industrial character of the warehouse.
