Furness Partnership Provided structural design services for the complete remodelling and refurbishment of this landmark art deco building in Whitechapel, London.

The project required the preservation of the Beaux Arts features whilst providing contemporary office space and retail units on the ground floor.

Particular structural challenges of the project included the provision of additional office space through infilling of existing lightwells, demolition of internal walls to provide open plan floor plates, infill works to the void left from the demolition of the Speigelhalter shop to provide a new entrance feature and the construction of new roof terraces with views over the city.
