White Collar Factory, Old Street, London
Develop design concept for a radical new office format building. By adopting Smart IT to reduce cooling requirements, coupled with passive design using exposed activated thermal mass and optimised windows, the design dematerialises the built form and its systems, and achieves ‘A’ energy label. The concept and ideas have now been built out into a re-constructed full scale whole floor prototype. Having shown its suitability for retrofit insertion the same design approach is being used for the adjacent 24,000m2 new-build office tower.
