    Compton Courtyard was built in 1859 by the timber merchant W.Filham.

    During its history Compton Courtyard has served as a base for an illustrious group of tenants, including; shoe manufacturers, engravers and printers. Each one of the previous occupiers has given the building its distinctive character and their specific demands have provided many of its best features; the need for easy access and substantial storage areas. During the early days it led to the large courtyard and excellent access facilities; the natural light that flows through the building made it ideal for the artisans and craftsmen who occupied the building to begin with and has made it an ideal base for designers and photographers in the more recent past.

    Based in a vibrant and dynamic part of The City Fringe, Compton Courtyard has seen many changes in its time, but it has maintained the very things which made it a great place to work in from the very beginning.

    Now the property has enjoyed a move into the 21st Century, where it has been recently refurbished to exemplary standards with an architectural injection creating inspiring work spaces, whilst still retaining the majority of its original building characteristics to include; exposed brickwork, revealed timber ceiling joists, iron columns, open plan layout formats and fantastic natural daylight. 

    The estate boasts a generous private secluded courtyard, which you are greeted with when you approach the building towards the main entrance lobby. The reception area d├ęcor is industrial chic; with its polished concrete flooring, original open iron staircase descending down from the 1st floor, exposed timber joisted ceilings, together with a modern art installation behind the reception desk with the use of lighting and mirrors by Ulla Winkler.

    Compton Courtyard is the epitome of that classic Clerkenwell Victorian warehouse conversion, which has become a real crowd favourite with tenants old and new. We think this property provides a wonderful light and spacious atmosphere that would be of interest to those in the creative, media and tech sectors, but not ruling out professional practices that are seeking a building less of the convention and more of a stimulating work environment.
