A pioneering new workplace has been officially launched in London’s technology hub campus, Old Street Yard, by Derwent London.
Designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris together with Arup, White Collar Factory is intended to act as a blueprint for future workplace design. Arup provided building and engineering services (mechanical, electrical, public health and facade) and consultancy (sustainability, acoustics, ICT & digital, fire safety and lighting).
White Collar Factory, a sixteen-storey multi-let tower, topped by a 150 metre rooftop running track and terrace, is one of six buildings making up the Old Street Yard campus. An early ‘office of the future study’ carried out by Derwent London and the design team established the key basic principles for the office and led to a working prototype.
