One of the most striking buildings in Hatton Garden and something of a local landmark, Wren House has led an eventful life. Originally constructed as a church in the 1600s, it was ravaged by flames in the Great Fire of London and later severely bomb damaged in World War II.
It’s a building that has somehow rooted itself in the consciousness of local residents and workers, a combination of its distinctive architecture and ebullient location. At the corner of Hatton Garden and St Cross Street, Wren House is on a direct route from Leather Lane’s daily street food market to Farringdon Station. In short, a lot of people wander past.
Reputedly designed by Sir Christopher Wren and renamed in his honour when the building was redeveloped by Warner Lofts, Wren House now sports a stunning modern glass walled extension on St. Cross Street. Alongside the original Grade II Listed façade, it does much to engage the curiosity of passers by.
Another addition to the building was a beautiful terrace on the fourth floor, which belongs the duplex office we are currently marketing. Arranged across the 3rd and 4th floors, this newly refurbished unit offers 5,447 ft2 of flexible, contemporary office workspace with a specification including folding walls, air conditioning, LED ceiling lighting, sleek fitted kitchen, fantastic floor-to-ceiling heights and large expanses of glass. To get you up to all this glory, the building has a passenger lift.
For any creative, tech or professional firm, the location is top notch. Hatton Garden has become one of the most agreeable locations on the City Fringe, with its rich legacy of jewellers still in tact and now joined by modern shops, cafes and bars that give the street a unique flavour.
Supremely accessible, Hatton Garden benefits from Chancery Lane tube (Central Line) at its southern tip, and Farringdon station just around the corner where Thameslink and three Underground lines are soon to be joined by the Elizabeth Line when phase one of Crossrail completes. Numerous bus routes run along Farringdon Road, Clerkenwell Road and High Holborn.
