The Brewery Building
Location London, N7
Status Consented December 2016
Squire and Partners have designed a new five-story building in Islington, creating over 1,000sqm of new space for office, commercial and light industrial uses.
Designs draws inspiration from the historical context of King’s Cross, using a palette of English bond patterned brick and dark painted metal combined with simple lintel details that reference the surrounding warehouse vernacular.
To create a unique identity for the development, a repeating pattern is applied to balustrades across the façade, offering a contemporary reinterpretation of Victorian details found on local buildings. The pattern abstracts a folding scissor gate to create a mesh pattern industrial in nature, but also refined and elegant.
