    Planning Usage: Business / Office

    The office space at Rolling Stock Yard complements the blend of innovative businesses moving to post-industrial York Way.

    London’s new cultural co-working hub, Tileyard Studios, has attracted tenants as diverse as musician Mark Ronson, event space Two Tribes brewhouse and design agency Think Tank.

    Whether it’s Rapha cyclewear’s converted warehouse, Antony Gormley’s sculpture studio or Liam Gallagher’s HQ for his Pretty Green menswear label, originality is about the mix, not just the individual. 

    As its name suggests, Rolling Stock Yard takes inspiration from the area’s pioneering railway development – a story that started with the nineteenth century Great Northern Railway and now sees King’s Cross at the apex of a network reaching from Scotland to France, and beyond.

    The building’s subtle exterior pattern of verticals and horizontals echoes that of the high-speed tracks that crisscross around York Way, while its materials are steeped in locomotive design: smooth hewn wood and corrugated metal panels that catch the light like the doors of passing freight trains. This lightly industrial aesthetic works with huge glass windows in the double-height reception, openplan flexible offices and an unrivalled 360-degree vista of London from the roof terrace.

    With its proximity to good railway connections – and to the creative co-working ethic of neighbours such as Tileyard Studios – Rolling Stock Yard is part of a dynamic and growing network.
