The Grade II listed Farmiloe Building was owned by the Farmiloe family, who retained ownership of the building and site for approximately 150 years.
Sitting within the Charterhouse Square Conservation Area, and overlooking Charterhouse itself, our proposals for the project will enhance the original 1868 building and provide a sensitive and exciting adaptation for office use. The building’s future users will be able to enjoy the restored character of its decorative interiors, as well as some extraordinary warehouse and loading bay spaces.
A new ‘sister’ building is proposed alongside the historic Farmiloe building to complement its character and to provide exciting new entrance and circulation spaces in support of the whole development.
On the ground floor of the development a modern retail space has been incorporated to provide street frontage activity with new affordable workspaces to the rear. At upper levels the building is carefully engineered to enable generous floor to ceiling heights for all offices, together with outlooks over private external spaces and roof garden terraces.
Specialist knowledge and best practice conservation techniques were employed to ensure respect for the historic building’s fabric, along with expertise in improving energy efficiency. The project will ensure that the listed building is on a sustainable footing for the next period of its life whilst making a dynamic and positive contribution to the conservation area within which it’s located.
