160 Old Street

CLIENT: Great Portland Estates
ARCHITECT:  ORMS
MAIN CONTRACTOR: Wates Construction
SITE DURATION: 6 Months

160 Old Street is the former Royal Mail building, now converted to an 166,300 square foot, 11-storey office space.

 

With four new retail units along the Old Street frontage, the building offers 6,780 square foot of retail and restaurant accommodation to invigorate the street frontage.

 

This was an Orms project which went on to win first place in Architects Journal.

 

Orms has a passion for creating buildings that embody fresh ideas and exceptional attention to detail, coupled with the ability to develop original solutions and win awards. 

 

Our concept was to create a striking washroom with industrial concrete vanity alongside black PVD accessories.

Using real wood veneer gave this project a touch of luxury to suited for its location.

Key Successes:

Outstanding bespoke rough textured oak veneers complementing black powder coated metalworks and with heavy finish glass tops creating a bespoke mix of traditional and modern looks, perfect for this edgy location in London.

 Exposed services and the structural loading for the vanity walls coupled with bespoke metal mirror boxes above requiring service access behind created challenging times and the design of bespoke steel support structures. The final solutions blended with the beauty of finishes produced a project I am particularly enamoured with.
