Located in the heart of Farringdon, the Farmiloe Building has a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. It was a full restoration project combing a Victorian warehouse and new build extension.
This was a sensitive restoration of the historic fabric, coupled with carefully considered new interventions, preserving the character of the original for future generations. This building provides 60,000 square feet office space, with the ground floor used as retail and reception, plus four floors of office space.
The Maxwood Washrooms concept was to retain Farmiloe’s beautiful character in conjunction with the new extension. The new and old buildings are connected with bridges with exposed brickwork and concrete which is mirrored in the exposed washroom ceilings and concrete vanity top.
I was provided with good information on previous projects, Mervyn Taylor was polite, professional, helpful, and knowledgeable.

Farmiloe had bespoke concrete tops, unique structural dividing walls to each Superloo, with high level panels to the concrete ceiling and with exposed services - the finished project was truly unique and with numerous outstanding finishes complementing the gloss laminate flush fronted cubicles. A wonderful main contractor, challenging angles, exposed concrete and a fantastic testament to multiple finishes working in harmony.
