York House, The Office Group (TOG)’s latest flexible workspace, has opened in King’s Cross, following a complete refurbishment and extension undertaken by dMFK Architects.
The reimagined workspace, set across 70,000 sq ft over eight storeys, transforms the former 1980’s office building into a larger dynamic space for TOG’s membership base, featuring best in class amenities including a state-of-the-art gym, café, library, terraces and roof gardens with panoramic views of the city.
In designing the interior concept, dMFK cites influences from the Golden Age of British sculpture, furniture, and reference to the building’s roots in the post-war British Art scene. The architects created welcoming entrance at ground level comprised a substantial five storey extension, constructed using a timber frame and angled lattice brickwork in the same brick as the original building.
Ben Knight, Director at dMFK Architects, commented: “Our seventh and largest office building for The Office Group, this is undoubtedly our most ambitious to date. dMFK’s goal from the outset was to achieve more permeability, opening the building up to the daylight, giving it a more welcoming feel, and maximising the potential of the space throughout.”
