Design Research Studio & David Morley Architects
castle-davis are appointed to manage the construction of Tom Dixon’s new headquarters in the historic Fish & Coal buildings in Granary Square.
The heritage buildings, which sit between the Regent’s Canal and Granary Square, will be renovated to provide restaurant space, offices and retail areas
The Fish and Coal Buildings and Wharf Road Arches were built in 1851 and provided offices for the coal trades’ clerical workers. The buildings, which follow the curve of the Regent’s Canal, were later used by staff administering the onward distribution of fish, brought into London through King’s Cross. The buildings were gutted by fire in 1983, and have remained empty ever since.
The scheme is set to open in 2018.
