The Granary, 80 Abbey Road, IG11

Located on the banks of the river Roding in Barking, the refurbished Granary, with its bronze-clad extension, has been designed as the headquarters for developer/contractor Rooff.

The design is a harmonious fusion of new and old. The sensitive restoration of the original building meets 21st century needs whilst preserving its historical character. The bold new extension takes its cue from the strong gabled form, and new materials further complement the original.

The central vertical circulation hub and high-level bridge link connects new accommodation to existing and creates a new dynamic heart to the building.
