In the heart of Islington, a neglected 1980’s office block facing demolition was dramatically transformed into a hub of activity by Alford Hall Monaghan Morris as an award-winning contemporary urban office space with its mix of public atrium, café, and roof top terraces. 

The redefined six storey building retains the original structure but has been completely remodelled inside and features retail units on the ground level and a stunning new full height atrium.
