    Planning Usage: B1 Business / Office

    Originally the site of David Duffield & Co, a linen-drapers dating back to the 1800s, 76-78 Clerkenwell Road gained a more recent renown as home to the revolutionary fashion house of Alexander McQueen. The firm occupied the building for 10 years from 2008-2018 before moving its London headquarters to nearby Aylesbury Street.

    Now re-christened Drapers House, this classic Victorian factory building has been subjected to a refashioning no less arresting than the designs of its radical couture occupant. In a development by Rockspring Property Investment Managers, an arm of PATRIZIA Immobilien AG, the building has been transformed into a series of futuristic workspaces where dynamic floor plates and creative mezzanines are augmented with hi-tech new materials and exposed original fabric. It’s a visionary reimagining that will deliver almost 13,000ft2 of extraordinary office space in a prime Clerkenwell location.

    Already reserved is the self-contained ground/lower ground floor 4,000ft2 duplex.  That leaves the first through fourth floors with access through the beautiful new entrance lobby with custom-designed visitors seating upholstered in opulent jade velvet.

    The first and second floor units each occupy a floor of the original building and have large replacement windows in the original factory style. Each measures about 2,200ft2.

    The third & fourth floor unit provides a total of 4,400ft2 and combines the building’s original top floor with a newly added double-height storey.  This remarkable space includes a sleek mezzanine, two private private terrace and, the building’s piece de resistance, a barrel vaulted glass roof. It’s an inspired piece of architectural ingenuity that offers an outlook across the Clerkenwell rooftops normally reserved for birds and adventurous cats.

    Among the materials, finishes and specification are: black steel mesh; exposed warehouse fabric; superb natural daylight; new VRF air-conditioning systems; LED strip lighting; fully accessible inlaid timber raised floors; shower facilities and cycle storage.

    Just one building from the junction of St John’s Street and Clerkenwell Road, one of the most recognisable corners in the City Fringe, Drapers House sits at the heart of London’s creative hub. Surrounded by British and international innovators in the worlds of fashion, design, tech and media, it’s an exciting and inspirational location that invites the very best in creative talent; people want to work here.

    With an unbeatable cache of places to eat, drink and socialise at any time of day, the area delivers an unbeatable offering for workplace enjoyment and with transport connections that are no less excellent. Farringdon station is just a few minutes away and, in 2019, will have its Underground and Thameslink services hugely upgraded with the arrival of Crossrail, with direct trains to the West End, Heathrow, Canary Wharf and beyond.
