Project Summary

Orsman Road commercial office space in Hackney is the perfect showcase of a multiple system approach. This new build contemporary building situated alongside a canal provides stunning views over the water for the tenants via a large terrace to the rear.


The construction utilised modern methods from lightweight steel framing to glass fibre reinforced cladding (GFC) which provided a clean and aesthetically pleasing finish. Our design team enabled large format panels along with the angled levels to provide a contemporary and striking addition to this London Road and is certainly an improved view from the canal side.


By using GFC cladding it created clean-cut concrete forms, these were able be achieved without reinforced structural work needing to be taken. The intention of the project from inception is the reduction of waste so it was key to find a fa├žade solution that would conform to this ethos.
