Package of the year
Folgate Court is an existing group of office buildings located on the western edge of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets originally redeveloped in the early 1990’s. Owned by Brockton Capital and located near Spitalfields, the building is transformed into a high quality, sustainable development that provides new office accommodation to meet the requirements of the modern day occupier.
The building is run by Fora Space, who specialise in flexible co-working spaces creating adaptable environments for business. This strategy allows many different sized companies access to excellent working space with flexible lease terms.
Key features include the retention and upgrading of the existing buildings and extending at the rear around the existing courtyard, enhancing floor space efficiency which supports increased employment density and modern access and inclusivity requirements.
The office space is accompanied by an enclosed courtyard,which dramatically improves connectivity between the buildings, as well as new break-out, event, wellness and café spaces. Orms design facilitates a premium hotel-style service with innovative technology, whilst significantly improving the building’s energy performance.
