Clerkenwell Green receives planning approval

GPAD’s proposal for the redevelopment of 2-7 Clerkenwell Green, Islington has received planning permission.

Our design is for a contemporary warehouse with a brick frontage and copper-clad mansard roof, sensitive to the conservation area. The project will also provide a modern, open plan workplace with fully DDA compliant level access and modern amenities, as well as meeting the latest sustainability standards in terms of BREEAM and WELL building standards.

When complete the building will boast 23,048sqft of prime workspace spread over seven floors.

GPAD’s Managing Director, Charles Bettes has said: “We’re a retrofit first practice, opting for refurbishment over new build whenever feasible. The building at Clerkenwell Green, however, would need extensive adaptation and likely need to be replaced by a new build in the not too distant future, therefore it’s more sustainable to address the problems now.

Charles continues: “Our plan delivers not only a better looking, more considered building, it’s also much more energy efficient and space is much better used. This will offer improved longevity and flexibility, while being a positive addition to the character of the conservation area and the street.”

As part of the proposed design, the ground floor will offer workspace accommodation to SMEs. There will also be three roof terraces, cycle storage and showers.
