16 Chart Street has won two AJ Retrofit Awards 2022 for AJ Retrofit of the Year and Workplace up to £5m.“The thoroughness of the thinking, combined with a deft lightness of touch in the execution, is what is so impressive about this exceptional low-carbon retrofit.”- Architect’s Journal
Working with Ian Chalk Architects, we were both the structural engineer and the client for 16 Chart Street, with our office now based in this remarkable refurbishment, the design reflects our approach to low-carbon structural design and our commitment to retrofit and reuse. The project is the redevelopment of an existing 1930s masonry warehouse located in Hoxton, which has been repurposed and the area increased to include a new side extension, an additional storey on the roof and a new central staircase.“We wanted it to be a place that made the passage through the working day effortless. Jump out of bed, roll or run to the office and then have every facility here for you, arranged in a seamless logical flow: bikes, showers, exercise, food, space, light, connectivity and collaboration; spaces and surfaces that we have spent the best part of three years honing. This is a place that stands for what we believe in: low-carbon design, reusing structure and a culture of collaboration and learning.” Mark Tillett, founding director, Heyne Tillett Steel and part owner, CSI Investments
We are so proud to call this project the London home of HTS, congratulations to all involved!
