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.

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.

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.

Alex Morgan of Morgan Capital said, “We are again extremely impressed with DLA’s ability to re-imagine tired and outdated assets with their #retrofit approach as well as in this case, developing a design aesthetic that suited the incoming tenant”.

Neil Matthews, of DLA said, “It has been an interesting design journey to deliver this superbly constructed project on a tight budget, it is a real testimony to the collective teamwork and dedication of the entire project team to have such a great result”.
