01 Introduction

Old printworks into fashion head quarters

DLA worked closely with Morgan Capital to reimagine this old printworks into a 45,000 sq ft new London office headquarters for a fashion/media occupier through the redevelopment of 6-10 Market Road, originally constructed in 1989.

New life into an dated façade

Striped back to frame

The building was stripped back to frame whilst retaining the original London stock brick facade which faces Market Road. The new façades increase daylight and provide full height views to every elevation. The new elevations were designed to be as efficient as possible and minimise material wastage.

Core fully reconfigured

The main circulation core areas were fully reconfigured, making the building fully accessible from the repositioned entrance / reception as well as giving level access to the terraces. A bike lift has been added to provide seamless connection to the extensive bike and shower facilities within the lower ground floor.

"We are again extremely impressed with DLA’s ability to re-imagine tired and outdated assets with their #retrofit approach as well as in this case, developing a design aesthetic that suited the incoming tenant”.
